About Dan Price
Dan Price founded Gravity Payments when he was just 19 years old. His mission was--and is-- to help hard-working small-business owners stay competitive against larger corporations by making credit card processing transparent, fair, and easy. Today, nearly 20,000 independent businesses across all 50 states trust Gravity as their processor. Dan captured national attention in 2015 when he decided to slash his salary by more than 90 percent and raise the company's minimum salary to $70,000 a year. Although he's been criticized for what some consider his radical policies on pay and equality, Dan believes businesses have enormous power to promote social good, regardless of what industry they're in, by serving communities instead of shareholders and putting people over profits. His leadership has earned him many awards, most notably Entrepreneur Magazine's Entrepreneur of 2014 and the 2010 SBA National Young Entrepreneur of the Year, awarded to him by President Obama. He lives in Seattle with his rescue dog, Mikey.
