About Square

Jack Dorsey, founder and CEO of Twitter, started Square in 2009. Square offers tools that democratize the business world, making it a less complex environment for young business and entrepreneurs. The original Square card reader was the first of many Square innovations. Today, the latest Square model is enabled to accept chip cards and NFC payments. Square has opened up a world of opportunity to anyone with a bright idea looking to start a business.

Square went public in November 2015 and continues to grow financially (it generated more than $5 billion in revenues each quarter) and strategically (it’s constantly rolling out new tools and ideas). Cash App, the peer-to-peer payment app, was created by the team at Squar e.Cash App was one of the first free payment apps to offer QR code payments. It stands out against its competitors, offering banking services that allow customers to receive their paychecks and tax returns up to two days early. Square’s rapid growth and innovation since its beginnings barely 10 years ago illustrate the team’s standout talent, inventiveness, and vision.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, cashless and virtual payment options became an essential part of our daily lives, helping people stay safer and healthier. Cashless payments have increased across the globe, and according to Square Economist Felipe Chacon, “We can look to markets where the pandemic has largely been eradicated, such as Australia, and see that the increase is sticking with business owners and consumers beyond the pandemic.” Out of both necessity and innovation, the economy is going virtual, and Square is leading the way.
