Stripe is a multi-billion start-up that creates software to enable and streamline e-commerce payment platforms. As online shopping is growing exponentially, the company is as well. Already in 34 countries, Stripe announced expansions to new regions, including a flagship office in Mexico City that is intended to "attract engineering talent and capitalize on the mobile-payment and e-commerce growth in the region."
Stripe's motive is to create an online ecosystem that is borderless and global. In a report, the company revealed that "70% of online businesses sell internationally." Thus, secure and efficient e-commerce payment platforms become quite important to the global success of companies, especially for those who are looking to test out the interest in untapped markets -- like the one in Latin America.
