How Henry Helgeson, Founder of Cayan, Built a Billion-Dollar Payments Tech Powerhouse
In 1998, Henry Helgeson founded Merchant Warehouse in upstate New York. He was selling simple terminals and printers to small businesses. In December of 2017, TSYS acquired Cayan – the company Merchant Warehouse would eventually become under Henry’s leadership as CEO - for $1.05 billion.
In the twenty years in-between, Henry grew Cayan into a major innovator in the payments marketplace. Cayan has built a portfolio of 70,000 small business merchants and has over 100 integrated partners. Through its Genius platform, Cayan has brought to market a suite of software and hardware products that offers small and medium business owners a variety of advanced payments capabilities.
On this podcast, Henry takes listeners through the history of Cayan, how he capitalized on the early days of ecommerce to build a billion dollar payments technology company, the company's acquisition by TSYS, and his insights into the future of payments technology.
