The Fintech Innovator Is Optimizing How B2B Payments And Credits Flow To Help Businesses That Are Ready To Grow

TOKYO and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Sept 25, 2019 – MUFG Innovation Partners Co., Ltd. (MUIP), a corporate venture capital fund and a wholly-owned subsidiary of MUFG, has invested in Fundbox, Ltd. Fundbox is a leading Fintech company dedicated to simplifying and improving the way businesses pay and get paid.

1. 本出資の目的



2. ファンドボックス社について

本出資先であるFundbox Ltd.はイスラエル法人であり、当社事業は、当社100%子会社のデラウェア法人であるFundbox, Inc.が運営しております。Fundbox, Inc.は、サンフランシスコを拠点とし、米州全域の中小企業向けにオンラインレンディングサービスを提供しております。

According to a recent Fundbox research study, the company found that there is an unprecedented $3.1 trillion owed to U.S. firms today, locked up in accounts receivables “limbo” or, what the company has labeled “Net Terms Economy.”

The company uses data science and a proprietary credit scoring model that utilizes accounting and bank account data to provide credit decisions within minutes and funding as quickly as the next business day.

To unlock the dollars tied up as outstanding invoices and net terms Fundbox has built the first two-sided payments and credit network designed specifically to accelerate B2B commerce. With automated machine-learning risk decisions, faster payments to sellers, and more flexible payment terms to the buyer, sellers can focus on increasing average order volumes (AOV) while buyers have greater purchasing confidence and repayment flexibility.

With this investment, Fundbox plans to strengthen its branding and customer acquisition strategies within its U.S. business.

MUIP’s primary focus is to pursue partnerships and business synergies between MUFG group companies and portfolio companies. It plans to continue seeking investment opportunities in the financial technology (Fintech) sector.
