  • New: Today, we’re launching a tool that helps Stripe Atlas companies issue stock to founders, as well as a few more features to help after incorporation. Since launching Stripe Atlas, we’ve worked with thousands of founders who are building everything from a behavioral therapist chatbot to a search engine for enterprises. We’ve repeatedly heard from them that the challenges of starting a business hardly end with incorporation—there are often many complexities to navigate around the company’s legal and financial infrastructure as well: Issuing stock to founders Stripe Atlas companies can now issue stock to their founding team for free. Companies can generate, review, sign, and store a full set of stock issuance documents using Atlas. These documents feature terms that are standard among many tech startups and top investors, such as four year vesting with a one year cliff. They’re generated from templates prepared by Orrick, a leading law firm for technology companies. Issuing st

  • New: When a company writes about their observability stack, they often focus on sweet visualizations, advanced anomaly detection or innovative data stores. Those are well and good, but today we’d like to talk about the tip of the spear when it comes to observing your systems: metrics pipelines! Metrics pipelines are how we get metrics from where they happen—our hosts and services—to storage quickly and efficiently so they can be queried, all without interrupting the host service.

  • New: Today, we’re launching two additional features to improve the security of your Stripe account: an option to use hardware tokens for two-step authentication and the ability to create API keys with restricted access and granular permissions. ## Two-step authentication with hardware tokens {#u2f} We first introduced two-step authentication for Stripe accounts [back in 2012](/blog/two-step-verification). Now, in addition to SMS or using Google Authenticator, you can also register a physical security key to approve logins to your Stripe account. We support any device using the Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) standard hosted by the FIDO Alliance. You can read more about the [devices and browsers we support](https://support.stripe.com/questions/how-do-i-enable-two-step-verification); of note, a single hardware key can be registered for two-step authentication with multiple services like AWS, Google, GitHub, and more.

  • New: Code is central to Stripe: we build APIs, software tools, and infrastructure that are in turn used by other software engineering-driven businesses. And of course code is also central—by definition—at other software companies. It’s easy for familiarity with code to become a barrier between different groups within a technology company: lots of companies have an upper tier of code-wrangling wizards that are supported by the rest of the company, sometimes known as the non-engineers. From the beginning, we’ve tried hard to avoid this at Stripe. In seating, we mix engineering teams with non-engineering teams. When we hire, we seek out engineers who are excited about problems beyond code itself. When we communicate internally, we make sure our engineering work is open and comprehensible to all Stripes, and that each improvement to our platform and even internal infrastructure is shared widely. Last year, we decided to take another step and to start a coding class for any interested

  • New: Starting a business is hard. Some of the difficulty is intrinsic—making products and services then convincing customers to pay for them will always be a challenge. Some of the difficulty is unnecessary—access to the infrastructure and tools for starting up an internet business is not evenly distributed. We built Stripe Atlas to remove the barriers that prevent some entrepreneurs from participating in the global economy on an equal playing field. Many of us here at Stripe have started businesses ourselves and we remember puzzling over taxes and being confused by Terms of Service. This pain is unnecessary and we’re setting out to fix it by sharing what we’ve learned to help build and start businesses. Today, we’re publishing our first guide—on topics around incorporation and taxes—and we’ll be writing more in the future. ’Real’ businesses In the technology industry, we often talk about “imposter syndrome”—the feeling that everyone around you knows what they’re doing and that
