Discover the secrets behind Stripe, the payments behemoth

When brothers Patrick and John Collison founded Stripe in 2010, John was just 19 years old and Patrick 21. Today, their payments platform is valued at over $9.2 billion and John has been named the world’s youngest self made billionaire (as of 2017).

Stripe’s platform facilitates billions of dollars in payments every year, empowering companies like Lyft, Target, Kickstarter, and Instacart. They’re the payments plumbing for these online retailers and service providers.

Stripe’s core product is just 7 lines of code, which can be pasted into your website in minutes, enabling you to power your e-commerce site in no-time.

This month, Stripe was featured on NPR’s podcast, ‘How I Built This.’ Check it out now on iTunes.
