Fresh Mindset: Nichole Montoya

“I’ve become pretty passionate about female entrepreneurship and just females feeling empowered to take their idea and bring it to life, whether it’s entrepreneurial or just having a seat at the table in your career…I think my daughters have learned, for better or worse, to be much less passive in their environment.” 

Nichole Montoya is a mother of two strong, independent daughters who have always participated in various school activities. Nichole found herself writing a lot of checks and filling out different forms, which became a silly annoyance in life. Seeing that other parents were also dealing with this problem, Nichole founded Cheddar Up, a leading software platform in school payment processing that makes this silly annoyance easy and manageable.
