Jim McKelvey - The Innovation Stack: Building an Unbeatable Business One Crazy Idea at a Time — at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, March 11, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In 2009 McKelvey, then a St. Louis glassblowing artist, worked with his friend, Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey, to find a way for small merchants to accept credit card payments on their phones. The two came up with Square—only to see their idea undercut by Amazon’s launch of a similar program. They fought back and prevailed, and in this compelling account, McKelvey shares the inside story of the struggle and reveals the key to Square’s success: the Innovation Stack. Blending memoir and anecdotes of the early days of Square with case studies from other businesses, McKelvey shows entrepreneurs how to beat the odds and the competition.
