Collison rubs shoulders with titans of the tech industry

the tech and media industry have their annual summit in Sun Valley in Idaho this week. Featuring a who's who of the business, it's renowned for executives pitching or finalising deals, or just shooting the breeze.

NBC's merger with ComCast began at Sun Valley three years ago, while Rupert Murdoch and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg will attend this year – alongside Limerick native Patrick Collison.

It's clear the 24-year-old is now part of the 'in crowd'. No word on whether his payments company Stripe will be involved in any deal this week but The Punt wouldn't be surprised. The event is geared to deal-making after all.
