Speaker Bio

Suneera Madhani is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Fattmerchant, an innovative tech company that makes payment processing simple. In 7 years, Suneera has taken Fattmerchant from an idea to processing over $8 Billion in payments. Fattmerchant revolutionized the credit card processing industry after being called “the Netflix of credit card processing” by Fast Company in 2014 and they are continuing to disrupt the fintech industry with their latest platform, Omniconnect, an all-in-one integrated solution that enables payments in days rather than months.

Suneera has become a pioneer not only in the Payments industry (Most Influential Women in Payments, PaymentSource), but also for minority women looking to launch a SaaS start-up and raise venture capital. She has over $150+ m raised in venture capital and her inspirational story has been featured in publications such as Forbes, Fortune, and Huffington Post. In 2018, Business Journal listed Suneera as their CEO Of The Year. This inspired Suneera to launch her Top 100 podcast, CEO School, in August which now inspires over 100k women every day.

Recently, Fortune recognized her in their 40 Under 40 list for her leadership in Fattmerchant’s explosive growth and Forbes ranked Fattmerchant in their Top 100 startup employers for 2020. Suneera is one of the few minority leaders in the fintech industry and continues to break down barriers with her visionary leadership. She is a sought after keynote speaker and is always looking for other opportunities to inspire others around her.
