Fireside Chat with John Collison, Co-Founder & President of Stripe at the Axel Springer NOAH Conference 2017 in Berlin, Tempodrom 22-23 June 2017.
Stripe is a set of tools for building and running an internet business. We help businesses accept payments from anyone, anywhere, and build new kinds of companies like Lyft or Kickstarter. Internally, we say our goal is to increase the GDP of the internet—we want to bring more businesses online worldwide. In everything we do, we put our users first. We work hard to build the cleanest, most robust APIs possible so that our users can focus on building great products. There’s always something more we can do—we’re constantly seeking out areas of our product we can improve. We’re building a company with folks from all sorts of backgrounds, who make great coworkers and who share and exemplify a few core values: people who are humble, respectful, inclusive, and ready to roll up their sleeves and get important work done for our users. If that’s you, we’d love to talk! Stripe’s investors include Sequoia Capital, Khosla Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and PayPal co-founders Peter Thiel, Max Levchin, and Elon Musk.
