Although we use Stripe system for online billing and help customers to charge for their services this way, we have recently seen that Stripe, as we find out, in partnership with YCombinator and other accelerators, initiated a new way to help founders and startups to focus more on their business and less on paperwork.
This service is called Stripe Atlas.
