Stripe is a San Francisco-based company that provides digital infrastructure services to digital businesses. Stripe’s primary offering is an online payments platform that allows companies to participate in e-commerce. Built on top of that platform are applications for revenue management, billing, financing acquisition, and fraud protection. Among Stripe’s customers are tech titans such as Amazon, Google, Salesforce, and Spotify, and the company is expanding its services to entrepreneurs in developing nations. Stripe launched in 2011, the brainchild of two brothers from the small town of Dromineer, Ireland. Since then it has grown to over 2,500 employees in 14 offices globally. In October 2020, the company introduced Stripe Climate, a tool that allows companies processing payments through Stripe to automatically route a percentage of each transaction to carbon reduction initiatives Stripe has invested in.
