Introducing Stripe Atlas. A new way to start an internet business anywhere.

Global access to startup tools

With Stripe Atlas, entrepreneurs can easily incorporate a U.S. company, set up a U.S. bank account, and start accepting payments with Stripe. Starting today, it’s available to developers and entrepreneurs globally.

The promise of the internet is that location matters less. However, geographic barriers and associated complexity make it difficult to start a global business in many parts of the world.

Developers around the world should have equal access to the tools and services that are available to those in Berlin and Boston. Atlas is designed to help.

The Stripe Atlas network

Stripe Atlas is invite-only to start. We’ll be scaling it to as many companies as possible as quickly as we can. You can apply directly or get a referral from one of our partners.

We’re working with more than a hundred accelerators, investors, and partners from around the world to get Atlas in the hands of promising startups. In addition, we’re working with some selected companies to make it easier for Atlas startups to take advantage of services: for example, AWS will extend $5,000 in free credits.

More about the Stripe Atlas network

I believe that we’re going to see a revolution of startups coming to the global market from places that we don’t even know exist. And Atlas could help them to start that company in a global environment from the beginning.

Geography shouldn’t be a barrier to building a company. Atlas could motivate and help tons of companies launch.
