About Stripe:

Stripe brings together everything that’s required to build websites and apps that accept payments and send payouts globally.

They also help companies beat fraud, send invoices, issue virtual and physical cards, get financing, manage business spend, and much more.

Only 14% of commerce takes place online today, despite the global economy accelerating its shift to online in 2020. Stripe’s mission is to grow the GDP of the internet, making it easy for ambitious companies everywhere to grow their business.

In the News:

In March this year, Stripe announced that is has raised a new round of funding to accelerate momentum in Europe and reinforce enterprise leadership.

Stripe, which builds economic infrastructure for the internet, has raised a $600 million (€500 million) funding round at a $95B (€80B) valuation. 

The company will use the capital to invest in its European operations, and its Dublin headquarters in particular, support surging demand from enterprise heavyweights across Europe, and expand its Global Payments and Treasury Network and its suite of software and services to help ambitious businesses drive more revenue.

Europe’s hypergrowth companies such as Deliveroo (UK), Doctolib (France), Glofox (Ireland), Klarna (Sweden), ManoMano (France), N26 (Germany), UiPath (Romania), and Vinted (Lithuania) all build on Stripe to compete on the global stage.
