Participated in the Sup46 (Start-up People of Stockholm) event and had the opportunity to listen to John Collison, co-founder of Stripe payments. They are currently starting their operations in Sweden and are moving fast.

John explains how tough it is to hire qualified people in Silicon Valley and how to attract them when you are a fast moving startup in the Tech industry.

We also discussed the complication on how to have payment services in a very regulated and complex Financial Service industry. Providing global services requires a local understanding of the regulations. In Europe it is easier, since there is the regulations are uniform compared to emerging and developing markets.
