Stripe was founded in 2011 by Patrick and John Collison. In late 2022, the company announced its intention to go public through a direct listing within one year.
Stripe develops software to facilitate financial transactions over the internet. Its payments platform is used by millions of users globally, according to the company. Stripe has raised over $2 billion in Venture Capital funding from investors including Novator Partners, Tiger Global Management, CapitalG, Base Partners, Connect Ventures, Golden Gate Ventures, GV, Kleiner Perkins, Salesforce Ventures, Union Square Ventures, Khosla Ventures, General Catalyst, Lowercase Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and Sequoia Capital. Market conditions and internal share price cuts have resulted in uncertain valuations, but a WSJ article from January 2023 reports that Stripe has an "implied valuation of $63 billion."
