Square was founded in 2009 with a simple mission: to make it possible for anyone to pay and get paid. They saw that payments were broken, and they wanted to fix them. They believed that if everyone could participate in the economy, it would create opportunity for all. ~And they were right. In the past nine years, Square has helped millions of businesses grow by making it easy for them to accept credit cards and run their businesses. Square is now available in more than 100 countries, processing billions of dollars in payments each year.
