The company was designed to transform the way websites accept online payments, and it’s a favorite of huge companies like Lyft and Facebook.

Though the siblings have struck Silicon Valley gold, they haven’t forgotten their humble roots in small-town Ireland.

John Collison who is originally from Ireland went to the US to attend Harvard – until he dropped out to focus on Stripe in Silicon Valley.

Today, Collison enjoys flying planes, running, and hiking with members of the Stripe team.
