Patrick Collison

Patrick Collison is the co-founder and CEO of Stripe, the simple developer-friendly way to accept payments online. Patrick co-founded Stripe with his brother in 2010 after personally experiencing the difficulty developers face when implementing a way to accept payments online for content and goods.

Stripe is expanding internationally and has launched in the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland, processing millions of dollars each day for companies including Heroku, Foursquare and Reddit. It is also in beta in many other European countries and Australia.

Patrick is no stranger to the startup world having previously co-founded and sold Auctomatic, an auction and marketplace management system, which he started in 2007 at the age of 18. Just a year later, the company was acquired by Canada’s Live Current Media for $5 million.
