One helpful tip per day:)

Justin Gordon provided a detailed introduction of Stripe's co-founder, Patrick Collison:

  1. Patrick was intelligent and clever from a young age, inventing a Lisp-based programming language called Croma at 16 and enrolling at MIT at 17.
  2. Patrick was an avid reader with an excellent memory. Before starting his own business, he spent two years reading various internet-related books.
  3. Stripe was not their first company, nor was it the original name they gave it. Even Stripe's initial business model was not well received. However, they overcame numerous challenges and ultimately built a powerful internet payment empire.
  4. When creating Stripe, the Collison brothers chose a slow pace, taking two years from writing the first line of code to officially launching the platform, and their  recruitment speed was also very slow.
