Square

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

Square, founded in 2009, is a payments company dedicated to serving micro-entrepreneurs and growing small businesses. The company’s debut product, a small white card reader designed to plug into a smartphone, signaled that cofounder and CEO Jack Dorsey saw an opportunity to introduce simplicity into an industry dominated by clunky and expensive point-of-sale solutions. Fast forward to the present, and Square has become a major force in payments worth around $16 billion. In addition to its signature card reader, Square now offers an iPad point-of-sale system and a larger register that retails for $999. The company also operates Square Capital, which provides loans to its merchants, and a consumer-facing mobile wallet, Cash App.
