Co-founder & CEO, WePay

Bill Clerico is co-founder and CEO of WePay. As co-founder and CEO, Bill has driven the company's vision, strategy, and growth from inception to present day, where WePay processes several billion dollars annually, has over 170 employees and has raised over $75 million in financing.  WePay was recently named to the Inc. 500 list of America's fastest growing private companies for the second year running.

Bill came up with the idea for online payment processor WePay when he was a 21-year-old graduate from Boston College. The concept looked so promising that he and WePay co-founder Rich Aberman moved to Silicon Valley, raised some money and opened for business eight years ago. About 7 months after starting the company, not making the progress they had hoped for, Bill and Rich applied to Y Combinator. They graduated with the Y Combinator class of 2009, and Bill is now a part-time Partner at YC, helping other entrepreneurs further their startup journey.

Prior to WePay, Bill was a technology investment banker at Jefferies and earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Boston College. 


WePay, is a company that powers payments for the platform economy.  WePay's customers include crowdfunding sites, marketplaces and SMB software platforms like GoFundMe, FreshBooks, Constant Contact, and Meetup.  WePay partners closely with platforms like these to ensure a seamless experience for their users while also protecting them from risk and regulatory exposure. 

WePay continues to expand its capabilities and services and grow at rapid pace. Earlier this year, WePay announced the first-ever fully white label mobile POS system, which provides platforms the ability to offer their own branded credit card reader without needing to take on any of the overhead of building, maintaining and fulfilling hardware. In addition, WePay recently expanded its international operations into the UK.
