In Detail

Patrick is no stranger to the startup world having previously co-founded and sold Automattic, 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. Founded in 2010, Stripe was an immediate hit among developers for its straightforward, API-based approach to getting an online business up and running. Co-founders John and Patrick Collison had seen that the internet's online payment infrastructure was broken, so they fixed it. Eight years later, they've parlayed their early cult status into a $9 billion valuation and an impressive roster of clients big and small.


Patrick Collison shares wise insights on success, failure, management, decision making, learning and so much more. He unveils how to use emerging techniques for building strong and international brands.
