IamA female entrepreneur in the financial technology industry who just raised $5.5 million. I also have a 1-year-old daughter. AMA!
Hi friends! I’m Suneera Madhani, founder and CEO of payment technology company Fattmerchant. The financial technology space is very competitive (and mostly male), so the road to our recent investment of $5.5 million has been interesting, to say the least! At a recent founder’s event, I was the only woman in the room and one of very few minorities. Since starting Fattmerchant in 2014, I’ve raised over $8 million in total funding and my company has transacted over $1 billion in payments for its merchants. Plus, I had my beautiful daughter in the middle of it all and very recently started recording my thoughts on my own blog!
We’ve had a lot of crazy experiences at Fattmerchant - both good and bad - that I’d love to share with you! We’ve been featured in TechCrunch, Forbes, FastCompany, Huffington Post and many more. We’ve also grown from 4 to over 30 employees.
I say all of this because I’d love to share my experiences and insights with you and answer all of your questions regarding entrepreneurship, scaling a business, raising capital, leadership, being a CEO and a mom, and anything else you would like to know about me and Fattmerchant!
Ask me anything!
