John Collison, a 27-year-old originally from Ireland, is the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, worth an estimated $1 billion.
He and his brother, Patrick, are the cofounders of Stripe, a $9.2 billion payments company they run out of San Francisco.
John said there was “not a sliver of a chance that we would be here” without the hard work of hundreds of employees building Stripe.
He said there was also room in the equation for luck.
