What is Stripe?

Irish entrepreneur brothers John and Patrick Collison from Tipperary, founded Stripe in 2010, initially using the name /dev/payments.

Stripe is a technology company that builds business infrastructure for the internet. In essence Stripe enables start ups or well established businesses to take online payments. Removing any barriers to entry with their clever software.

Stripe has created an incredible paywall gateway that works for all type of companies with so much flexibility for every type of business imaginable.

Little over 10 years and Stripe is estimated to be worth 36 Billion. Not bad for a couple guys from Tipperary.
