GoCardless, YC, Payments and Life with Hiroki Takeuchi

GoCardless, YC, Payments and Life with Hiroki Takeuchi

Hiroki Takeuchi is the Founder and CEO of GoCardless, a London-based fintech that simplifies recurring payment collection for businesses.

GoCardless has raised $47m to date and is backed by the likes of Balderton, Accel Partners, Passion Capital and Notion Capital. Hiroki and his co-founders, including Tom Blomfield, now of Monzo, who joined us on the podcast way back in episode 17, went through Y Combinator early on and have some interesting stories about that experience.

Today's conversation covers a number of topics, some of which are quite challenging. I'd highly encourage you to listen through to the end. Hiroki is an exceptional entrepreneur with a powerful story.
