The Founders Series
Each month, we feature Harvard alumni who have taken the plunge and started their own venture here in the Bay area. This September, join us in welcoming Jim McKelvey as he discusses Square's plans for point-of-sale payments.
A Preview of What to Expect
For too long, merchants were forced to pay credit card companies outrageously high fees for accepting customer credit cards. Jim will talk about how Square is looking to change all that with its signature white, square dongle which converts any iPhone into a point-of-sale credit card reader. Best of all, no fees for the reader and only a minimal 2.75% fee per transaction. Small merchants are flocking to the service - and, unsurprisingly, Square just received additional funding at a $1 billion dollar valuation. A must-attend Founders Talk for anyone interested in commerce and groundbreaking consumer technologies.
