Modo went to ETA TRANSACT 2018 to be a part of the Payments Pitch-Off and man a table in the Startup Zone. We had an amazing time (and ending up WINNING the Pitch-Off) at the conference. You can read about our experience that was featured on ETA Transaction Trends below.
You’ve got the Modo team here! To kick this off we want to say that we’re so proud to have won the Payments Pitch-Off at TRANSACT. There were a TON of amazing companies pitching at the event, and for us to come home with the win and the $30,000 prize meant so much to our entire team.
At Modo, we have a thing for accepting challenges. Whether that be a challenge coming from a client as we tackle the industry’s toughest problems, the challenge of consistently exceeding client expectations, or the challenge to push ourselves to the next level of personal growth. (Doing things you thought you couldn’t do is pretty cool).
The main challenge that we’re taking on is doing the most good for the most people by reducing friction between payment systems. Modo’s payments utility enables interoperability throughout the industry without requiring any integrations. That means connections between enterprise online merchants, banks, networks, and their partners to new alternate methods of payments (APMs) like PayPal, Alipay, Klarna, and Venmo (to name just a few) can happen quickly without any changes required on either side of the connection.
If you deal in financial services or commerce you understand how complicated it is to connect the siloed systems and closed networks that make up the industry. But we are obsessed with payments (seriously, we call ourselves #paymentsgeeks), and work eagerly to reduce friction for the industry.
Now that we have established just how much we love a good challenge, when we heard about the TRANSACT Payments Pitch-Off we automatically thought “CHALLENGE! Let’s do it.”
