Big Tech Show: Stripe, success and social justice
This week, Adrian Weckler sits down with Stripe’s all-action chief operating officer, Claire Hughes-Johnson, one of the star speakers at this year’s Moneyconf conference.
They talk about solving problems, problems with homelessness in big tech cities like San Francisco and why there’s still a long way to go for online payments to fulfil its potential.
Stripe, the online payments firm set up by Limerick brothers Patrick and John Collison, is now one of Silicon Valley’s most important tech firms. It was valued at over $9bn a year ago but is almost certainly worth more now.
