Stripe was founded in 2011 by Patrick and John Collison. According to the Wall Street Journal in January 2023, "Stripe plans to go public or allow employees to sell stock within the next year. Two people familiar with the matter say the move is more likely to result in Stripe raising new capital privately, rather than a public listing."

Stripe is a payment platform that develops software to facilitate financial transactions over the Internet. Per Forge data, Stripe has raised a total of $8.7 billion in funding over 20 rounds. Their latest funding was raised on April 25, 2023, leaving the company with a valuation of over $10 billion. Key investors include Thrive Capital, National Treasury Management Agency, Founders Fund, Capital G, Tiger Global Management, and MSD Partners.
