Suneera Madhani is a payments and technology innovator who has catapulted her business idea from startup to $2B —disrupting the payments ecosystem as we know it. Before founding Fattmerchant in 2014, Madhani held a variety of successful positions, one being with a larger merchant services provider. After seeing the need for transparency and a better payment experience for merchants, her entrepreneurial spirit took hold and she decided to solve the problem herself. She built a company from the ground up that provided a sophisticated and merchant-friendly platform, coupled with the best experience to customers through transparency and award-winning customer service. Fattmerchant has revolutionized the payments landscape — challenging the status quo with its transparent, subscription-based model and unifying the payments experience through the development of an integrated payments platform. Under Madhani’s strategic leadership, Fattmerchant has grown exponentially over just 5 years; attaining triple-digit growth year after year, scaling operations in multiple cities across the United States, raising $20M in venture capital, and hiring nearly 100 employees. Madhani is hyperfocused on fostering Fattmerchant’s thriving culture that fosters purposefulness, growth, and inclusion. Fattmerchant has won multiple best places to work awards, including Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2018 Top Company Cultures, and was the fastest-growing Fintech startup in the Orlando Business Journal's 2019 Fast 50. Madhani has been recognized for her vast achievements and strength in business plan through various mediums including Forbes, Fast Company, Yahoo, Tech Crunch, Huffington Post, pymnts.com, Merchant Maverick, and the Orlando Business Journal.
Once your company has achieved financial success, you may find yourself in a position to give back to your community. By donating time or money to a good cause, you’ll not only become a more socially responsible company, but you’ll also feel more fulfilled as a business owner and potentially strengthen the loyalty your clients feel for your organization.
Taking risks is always intimidating. It can be scary to leave comfort and safety behind and leap toward a potentially difficult and life-altering decision. But anything worth having rarely comes from taking the easy path.
When launching a startup, business owners often receive a lot of advice from everyone around them. As a new entrepreneur, it can be difficult to parse through it all and determine what truly applies to your business.
Have empathy for your team as well as yourself.
It's often said that a happy employee is a motivated, productive one. If your team members are feeling good about themselves and their work, they’ll bring that positive energy into everything they do. That's why it's so important to keep a close eye on your overall team morale.
At times it can be difficult to turn off our emotions -- especially when it comes to separating personal feelings and work. While it’s perfectly normal to have negative feelings in the face of difficult work situations, wallowing in these emotions for too long can affect your job performance as well as your overall well-being.
Recent events have made it so that managers and owners are learning how to conduct business in new and innovative ways. Managing a company in a crisis goes beyond logistical decisions. It reaches into trying to predict outcomes based on incomplete information. This precognition might seem like an exercise in futility, but there are still constants in the chaos.
Pivoting requires having a fearless mindset and facing challenges head on.
Businesses run on money the way engines run on fuel. Knowing how to effectively save money, especially when a business first gets started, is a great way to build capital to help the company grow. Funding is usually one of the most significant hurdles for a new business to overcome. Unless the company already has an angel investor, this stumbling block might be the one that dooms the enterprise in the long run.
Remember, hindsight is 20/20.
Events are perfect opportunities to expand your startup’s brand and give you a leg up on your competition.
Keep an eye on your data and keep refining it, and you’ll see more conversions in no time.
