"Square: Making Commerce Easy" with Jack Dorsey

Friday, February 1, 2013 at 4:00pm

RISD Auditorium 17 Canal Walk, Providence RI

Jack Dorsey is the creator, co-founder, and Executive Chairman of Twitter, Inc. and the co-founder and CEO of Square, Inc. Originally from St. Louis, Jack's early fascination with mass-transit and how cities function led him to Manhattan and programming real-time messaging systems for couriers, taxis, and emergency vehicles. Through this work, Jack witnessed thousands of workers in the field constantly updating where they were and what they were doing; Twitter is a constrained simplification designed for general usage and extended by the millions of people who make it their own every day. As part of Jack's continued devotion to simplifying the complex and making technology accessible to everyone, everywhere, Jack co-founded Square in 2009. Square enables anyone to accept credit card payments on their mobile device and has empowered hundreds of thousands of individuals and merchants to start and grow a business. Jack was recognized as one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people and was named an "outstanding innovator under the age of 35" by MIT's Technology Review.
