Startup Grind London invited Steve O’Hear and Hiroki Takeuchi, co-founder and CEO of GoCardless for a fireside chat.

Steve O’Hear is a well-known technology journalist, focusing on European startups, companies and products.

Steve will talk to Hiroki Takeuchi, CEO of GoCardless, a platform that enables small and large companies to accept bank-to-bank payments as an alternative to card payments.

GoCardless was founded in 2011 by Hiroki Takeuchi, Tom Blomfield and Matt Robinson and went through Silicon Valley’s Y Combinator accelerator. It crossed the barrier of $1 billion annual payment volume in 2015 and processes $3 billion in annual transactions for over 30,000 businesses as of 2018. GoCardless was ranked 11th in Times Tech Track 100.

Hiroki is an alumni of Oxford University. He was the Vice president of Oxford Entrepreneurs where he cofounded Varsity Pitch, a business ideas competition between Oxford and Cambridge’s top business ideas for a 10k pounds prize fund. He also led Idea Idol, the society’s hugely successful flagship business ideas competition with 5,000 pounds as a prize pool.
