About the founders/CEO:
Ryan is the founder & CEO of Bolt, which is currently the fastest growing checkout-platform. By uniting the checkout experience, fraud detection and payment processing into one product, Ryan is focused helping online retailers stay competitive by providing a better-than-Amazon checkout experience.
Ryan left Stanford’s Computer Science program in early 2014 to create Bolt and pursue his vision for the future of online payments. While at Stanford, Ryan cofounded the Stanford Bitcoin Group, dedicating research to the future of money and financial systems.
Prior to Bolt, Ryan spent six years building e-commerce sites for businesses of all sizes — from small mom and pop shops to large corporations. It was during this time that Ryan experienced first-hand the shortcomings of the online commerce space, which inspired him to design a better alternative. Before that, his four years as a Publix Super Market bag boy helped him recognize the issues with a different kind of checkout experience.
