Startups are the driving force behind our economy’s growth and agility. That’s why we’ve been working with founders since our founding days. They are not only unique in their ability to move fast but also in their complex requirements, which often require creativity and flexibility to solve with tight resourcing. We find that learning about the challenges and constraints of these startups often leads to new ideas, manifesting in our own roadmap.

Today, we’re doubling down on our commitment to startups as we continue to deliver on our mission of making paying people simple, across platforms of all sizes and verticals. In fact, Check is already powering emerging leaders in the broad industry shift towards Vertical Workforce Management and is continuing to broaden support for startups to:

  • Build faster. Thanks to easy to use plug-and-play Components, startups can get their integrations up and running in a matter of weeks. Dripos built their integration out with a single engineer in two weeks, and we’ve seen startups go live in as little as 59 days.
  • Launch leaner. With Embedded Setup and Embedded Support, the operational burden of onboarding, migrating, and supporting customers is minimized. Check’s team of payroll experts handles all of the complexity, so startups can focus on what truly matters. Using these tools, startups will be able to go to market much quicker, with less operational requirements.
  • Scaling with confidence. As platforms grow and gain traction, so do their fraud and risk surfaces. This is where Credit & Fraud Protection comes in: with no responsibility for losses, there’s no need for Check partners to build up large compliance and risk teams or worry about a fraud loss hitting their bottom line. Miter has been rapidly scaling their all-in-one software for construction, without the worries that usually come with building a payroll product.

These tools make it an order of magnitude easier for startups to launch a payroll business and grow successfully. We recently sat down with Ayush Sharma to learn more about how this has manifested at Warp, where users can go from zero to running payroll in just 15 minutes.

If you’re working on an exciting idea and think payroll should be a part of it, we’d like to hear from you! The Check team is also going to be hosting a booth at Stripe Sessions 2024. If you’re attending, please come by and say hello!
