FAQ

What is the Stripe Mafia?

The term "Stripe Mafia" is a play on the "PayPal Mafia", a group of early PayPal employees who went on to found influential companies. Stripe has been around for 10 years and many ex-employees are now starting their own startups. I'm compiling them in one place.

Where does this list come from?

It's entirely crowdsourced! I seeded the initial list from my network, this Twitter thread, and this Business Insider article.

If you know of a company that should be on here, please DM me on Twitter or send me an email.

What qualifies a company to be on this list?

Three criteria:

  • At least one founder of the company should be an ex-Stripe (full-time or intern.)
  • The company should have been founded during or after their tenure at Stripe.
  • Information about the company should be public knowledge. We want to respect founders whose companies are in stealth.
How do I find out about new startups being added?

Subscribe to the mailing list. I'll email you when new startups are added.

Who is behind this site?

It's me, Atty Eleti. I work at Stripe!

Feedback

Appreciate your help! Please DM me on Twitter or send me an email.

I want to request my company not be listed here.

Sorry about that β€” I try my best to keep this site limited to publicly available info, but founders come first. Please DM me on Twitter or send me an email and I'll remove your company right away.
