During our latest Seedcamp Academy session we were joined by Stripe co-founder John Collison.
He shared the story of how he grew the online payment provider with his brother, from securing the first few clients to managing the tens of thousands of clients using Stripe today.
John grew up in Ireland and founded his first startup, Shuppa, in 2007. After merging the company just a year later, John moved to Harvard to study Psychology. In 2010, John cofounded Stripe, receiving backing from Paypal cofounders, Peter Thiel, Elon Musk, and Max Levchin.
