Bootstrapped to Venture Funded: Braintree (Online Class)

Bill Ready, CEO, Braintree


Join us for a special Free Live Stream of the Week as Bill Ready, CEO of Braintree, discusses the future of payments on the Braintree and Venmo platforms. Braintree & Venmo are making payments easy to integrate and scale as you grow onto new platforms like mobile and new countries internationally. Hear Bill discuss the history of his company and how it went from a bootstrapped startup to a venture funded business.


Bill Ready is CEO of Braintree, an online and mobile payment provider for many of the world’s best, next-generation, e-commerce companies. Prior to joining Braintree, Bill was executive in residence at Accel Partners, a leading Silicon Valley venture capital and growth equity firm that has invested in a number of category defining companies, such as Facebook, Kayak, and Rovio (Angry Birds). A veteran of the payments industry, Bill joined Accel from iPay Technologies, a division of Jack Henry and Associates, where he served as president, guiding the company through a period of rapid revenue and earnings growth and its eventual sale to Jack Henry for $300M. Prior to iPay, Bill worked as a strategy consultant for McKinsey & Company in Chicago, providing counsel to a number of leading enterprises in the United States and Asia/Pacific, with a specific emphasis in payments and financial technology.
