Founded by a 16-year old

Shift4 was founded by Jared Isaacman when he was just 16. Isaacman, having already secured his GED and working full-time in a payment processing firm, he observed several industry inefficiencies. Traditionally, merchants faced a month-long wait to initiate a payment system, bore the cost of credit card readers, and navigated extensive applications. He established what would later become the modern form of the company United Bank Card in his parent's basement in Far Hills, New Jersey, to address these issues. Isaacman and the company he went on to found changed this by streamlining the setup to just one day, offering free credit card readers, and simplifying the application to two pages.
