We’re excited to partner with Stripe on Atlas, a new product that gives entrepreneurs access to some fundamental tools and infrastructure for starting and growing a global business.

 

As you know, it can be very difficult to start a global company and accept online payments. Some entrepreneurs travel to the U.S. to incorporate their company just to get access to business and banking infrastructure.

 

In a nutshell, Atlas gives entrepreneurs access to the fundamental tools and infrastructure for starting a global internet business.

 

Entrepreneurs who are invited to the private beta just need to fill out some information about their product and team. Stripe then helps to incorporate a company in Delaware, open a U.S. bank account at Silicon Valley Bank, and set up a U.S. Stripe account for processing payments–in most cases within a week instead of months. Atlas also provides entrepreneurs with access to, legal guidance from Orrick, and promotional credits and support from Amazon Web Services.  Of course, we would also be happy to help with tax advice!

Since we’re partnering with Stripe as a member of the Atlas network, we can recommend companies for early access to the private beta. Let us know if you’re interested via talk@ihorizon.co.uk and we’ll put you in touch with the team at Stripe!
