Patrick Collison makes deals of all stripes

Collison is No. 64 on the Recode 100.

Rani Molla is a senior correspondent at Vox and has been focusing her reporting on the future of work. She has covered business and technology for more than a decade — often in charts — including at Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal.

Online payments are a big, fast-growing industry. Good news for Patrick Collison, who runs what has become one of the dominant companies in the business.

This year, CEO Collison helmed the online payments startup as it launched in Hong Kong and in six European countries. He helped expand Stripe’s partnership with Chinese juggernauts AliPay and WeChat Pay to Stripe’s global customers. Collison also led Stripe’s acquisition of tax reporting company Payable as well as online entrepreneur community Indie Hackers.

Stripe was last valued at $9.2 billion, making Collison and his brother, who co-founded the company in 2010, two of the world’s youngest billionaires.
