John Collison is president and co-founder of Stripe, the software company that is expanding internet commerce by making it easy to process transactions from anywhere.
John and his brother Patrick Collison started Stripe in 2010 while John was studying physics at Harvard. Their goal was to make accepting payments online simpler and more inclusive, after learning firsthand how difficult it was. Today, the 2800-person (and growing) Stripe team powers online businesses around the world.
Prior to Stripe, John co-founded Auctomatic, which was acquired by Live Current Media in March 2008.
