Former Google and Facebook executive Prashant Fuloria leads a quartet of key hires by SMB funding platform Fundbox.
Mr. Fuloria joins Fundbox from Yahoo, where he was Senior Vice President of Advertising in charge of the engineering and product teams. He joined Yahoo through its acquisition of mobile app analytics platform Flurry.
While with Facebook Mr. Fuloria was responsible for their commerce and advertising products. His responsibilities at Google included managing products in Asia Pacific and building monetization products.
“Managing cash flow is a perennial source of anxiety for business owners around the world,” said Fuloria. “Fundbox addresses this enormous market need using an innovative technology platform that would not have been possible even a few years ago.
“We intend to continue leading the industry with new products to drive small business productivity and empower SMBs everywhere.”

“We are building a world-class management team that will advance our mission of giving small businesses the ability to pay and get paid on their terms,” said Eyal Shinar, chief executive officer of Fundbox. “Prashant, Oren, Michal, and Johnson are tremendous additions to Fundbox and they bring a proven track record of success to our already strong team.”
