and, even though you’re a successful entrepreneur, it’s likely you didn’t, either.
A multi-million dollar founder & CEO, who shouldn’t even be here.
As my success was happening for Stax, I realized that less than 2% of female founders ever break 1m in revenue - and less than 3% of venture capital goes to women - worse - less than ..01 % to women of color.
Since, I didn’t go to “ceo school” , I scaled my company with mistakes I had to personally make, hard lessons along the way, and giving up wayy too much equity in my company early on.
Mistakes I could have easily avoided if knowledge was accessible for women as it is for the boys club.
The CEO mindset and skills I learned were what allowed me to scale to a billion dollar valuation… but it wasn’t always like this.
I had to learn from my own, often expensive mistakes. I didn’t know how to scale, how to hire, how to truly be a CEO.
And with these lessons, I’ve created a 6-part framework for scale. From pitch to profit, you’ll learn the foundations you need to become a “real business” and the next steps you need to take to get your business to that next level.
Doors to the 8-week CEO School course open soon so if you're serious about scaling your business, join the course waitlist:
It might sound like any entrepreneur's absolute dream... or their worst nightmare. Why? Well, although as entrepreneurs we're striving toward growth and, ultimately, more sales, your business might not have the people, the processes or even the vision to take on a huge uptick in sales.
How do I know? That was me.
In 2014 I founded a payment-processing fintech called Stax, which I had been keeping afloat one sale at a time. Not long after, a Fast Company cover titled "Meet The Woman Who Is Trying To Change The Credit Card Industry" made us an overnight sensation. Phones were, quite literally, ringing off the hook.
That moment changed everything for me. We lost so much opportunity then because we weren't ready that I vowed to build a business infrastructure that could withstand 10x sales.
8 years later, that idea took us to a billion-dollar valuation.
6 value-packed modules, of which you’ll get a full workbook with step-by-step processes of exactly how to level up. 2 weeks of implementation so you can feel secure in the changes you’re making.
8 weeks of group coaching to ensure you’re on the right track and bust through blockers AND 4 stellar guests. This is what you need to get to your next level.
All good leadership, and good business, comes from a solid mindset that understands how to rally people around a vision, and what to do when no one but you sees that vision.
Your story, your brand story, will be your greatest selling point — without it, you’re merely one more in an already saturated market. Learn to pitch yourself and what you do, across channels and into bigger opportunities.
Make the most out of your product suite — and make sure you’re pricing it correctly. Figure out the missing pieces, and how to build and launch them.
What and how to measure to ensure your business is successful? This class will show you how and allow you to plan ahead so YOU run you business (not the other way around).
All the playbooks you need to systemize and standardize your business to ensure you’re ready for 10x or 100x sales.
Once you’ve got your playbooks in place? Learn to hire effectively to build a dream team that can run your company even better than you do.
You’re a successful entrepreneur already. Congrats, you! It’s not easy to get a product or service you believe in ups and running but YOU DID IT… you just don’t know how exactly you got here, or what your next step should be.
You’re ready to take your business to the next level: not only hire to delegate, but have a true org structure in place; not put out fires as they come up but have a yearly plan that feels aligned; not just survive but thrive!
You know your product is good — but you want it to be great. Whether that means automating it, expanding your product line, or something entirely different.
You’re ready to let go of control (tough one!) in order to gain back freedom of time…
You want to be a leader heading an organisation and a team, not just making it work from your laptop at the local cafe.
The CEO School Course is an 8-week experience, where you’ll get 6 weeks of workshops on power, pitch, process, product, people and profit. For 2 weeks, we’ll implement what we’ve learned AND you’ll get Suneera showing up to coach live every. single. week.
Yes, Suneera will be showing up live EVERY WEEK to coach you and the other CEO's through blockers, issues and more!
This program will only open to join from May 19-25th and will only be available during that period. This’ll be the only time to snag a spot, as we won’t be opening up doors again until the fall.
We officially kick things off the 30th May.
Yes! It doesn't matter if you have a product-based or service-based business -- when building this course, it was important to us to have this be an industry-agnostic product. So, if you're tired of seeing advice that only helps service-based, Instagram-selling entrepreneurs, this is for you! We'll take you through the exact steps you need to grow your business -- *any* business.
CEO School was co-founded by 8-figure entrepreneur, Suneera Madhani– an unlikely CEO who learned that betting on yourself is the best bet you'll ever make.
CEO School was created to help 100 women join the 2% Club and show women the power we have to change our lives, shift our legacy, and alter the course of history.
It's time to level the playing field. Time to call b.s. on what’s been done before, and start going after what’s possible. It's time to level up in leadership and in life.
"In the six years since its founding, Orlando-based Fattmerchant has facilitated more than $5 billion in transactions for businesses across the U.S. That kind of explosive growth is a testament to Madhani’s vision for the fintech startup, which has looked to bring modern payments-processing technology to merchants large, medium, and small at an affordable price point. As a woman in her early thirties, Madhani is among a wave of young female founders who are changing the game and spearheading innovation in the fintech space—paving the way for a more diverse and equitable future for entrepreneurs in the realms of finance and technology alike."
