Michael Young, Founder and CEO of Photon Commerce | Episode 113

Michael Young, Founder and CEO Photon Commerce is our special guest this week on episode 113 of the Leaders in Payments podcast. 

Michael grew up in Philadelphia, moved to the West Coast to attend grad school at Stanford. He dropped out of Stanford and started a few companies before realizing the need for a Cash App or Venmo like solution to make b2b payments fast and easy.   

Photon Commerce has created an AI solution that focuses on enriching payments data with line-item data. Today they have 25 employees and enable their customers to move at the speed of light – therefore the name Photon Commerce.  

Michael’s advice for those just starting in payments is to truly understand the big picture or the mission of the company as well as the societal impact the solution could make.
