Qolo’s Patricia Montesi on launching a payments company during the pandemic
Launching a new firm in the face of this global crisis takes fortitude. Timing couldn’t be worse. Or could it? Demand for different types of digital payments is ramping. That’s the space Qolo plays in. A bit like Marqeta, a bit like Fiserv, the company was launched by a team with a lot of payments industry experience to be a next-generation B2B payments hub and an all-in-one payments solution.
Pulling B2B Payments Into The New Economy
Despite making major strides in functionality, legacy payment rails like ACH still come with their challenges — especially when facilitating B2B payments.Innovators have turned their attention and energy toward mitigating those points of friction, either though solutions that sit on top of existing payment rails, or through building entirely new infrastructure from the ground up.
Why the 'all-in-one' channel is rising in B2B payments
While a business seeking payments and business management services could piece together what it needs from a few different providers, it's increasingly easier to find fintechs and startups demonstrating how all services can funnel through one platform.
