It’s been a whilwind couple of days. We had Michael Tchong speak last night at our inagural Marin event, and we had Patrick Collison the night before that in Palo Alto. Patrick is CEO of one of the most interesting startups in Silicon Valley. He’s taken a decade old problem and completely turned it upside down on it’s head.
He and his brother have taken an idea and in two years built a 20+ person company valued at well over $100MM. Patrick is a fascinating person. At only 23-years old he’s already won a national science award (in Ireland), sold a company for $5MM, and now he’s onto his next massive hit set to disrupt the entire payments industry. Remember the name Stripe, because you’ll be hearing a lot about it.
