Innovative Entrepreneur Suneera Madhani Coming to Eastern Florida State College Oct. 22
By Space Coast Daily // October 2, 2019
Both Lectures are free and open to the public
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – There are success stories and then there is Suneera Madhani. In the past five years she has started her own company, raised $20 million in venture capital, seen triple-digit growth each year, expanded into multiple cities and hired 100 employees.
In doing so, she has disrupted the business payments and credit card processing ecosystem and made her firm, Fattmerchant, the talk of the business world.
She has done it all by age 30.
Madhani will bring her inspirational story to Eastern Florida State College on Tuesday, October 22, as part of the Simpkins Entrepreneur Series.
The lectures are free and open to students, faculty, staff and the public.
Madhani will speak at two locations:
- The Bernard Simpkins Fine Arts Center on the Cocoa Campus at 9:30 a.m. – 1519 Clearlake Rd., Cocoa
- The Melbourne Campus Student Union Conference Center at 11 a.m. – 3865 N. Wickham Rd., Melbourne
After graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in finance, Madhani started at a top consumer products company and moved into merchant services.
It was then she realized “how horribly non-transparent the payments world was where so many truths are hidden behind lengthy invoices, shady contracts and vague language.”
She struck out on her own and created Fattmerchant with the promise “to be transparent and provide value to every business that processes payments.”
“I worked with an incredible team and network to build the company from the ground up, and I’m so proud of everything we’ve accomplished. We’ve processed more than $2 billion in transactions,” she said.
