Square believes the economy is better when everyone has access. It’s empowering the electrician to send invoices, setting up the food truck with delivery, helping the boutique pay employees, and giving the coffee chain capital for a fourth location.
Square started in 2009 with a tiny, white card reader you could plug into your phone to accept credit card payments instantly. After a $3.4 billion IPO in 2015, the company is now a cohesive commerce ecosystem that helps sellers start, run, and grow their businesses. As Square grows, how could the company change the way we sell and buy things?
Square CEO Jack Dorsey shares why and how he started the digital payments company, his approach to innovation in financial services, and his vision for the future of commerce.
