PayPal is a worldwide online payments system, with over 17 years of experience in supporting online payments as well as serving as an an alternative to traditional ways of transacting. In 2015 alone, PayPal processed 4.9 billion payments worldwide. PayPal is proud of the relationships and connections it has built with the entrepreneurial community over almost two decades; it is always looking to reward those who lead from the front.

From creating job opportunities to stimulating economies at the national and local levels, entrepreneurship is poised to herald in a major financial and social revolution. PayPal understands the importance of entrepreneurship and what it can achieve. PayPal has grown from strength to strength, and is now enabling Indian entrepreneurs to have an avenue to receive payments for providing their products and services all over the world. In fact, PayPal has over 197 million active customer accounts in over 200 markets around the globe.

PayPal’s Seller Protection safeguards Indian sellers up to the full amount on eligible sales, in case a client/buyer raises an false claim for refund. The company is often referred to as a standout example of startup success, and it is only understandable then why PayPal chooses to reward the hard work and efforts of budding entrepreneurs.

Recognition is often the first step towards nurturing—PayPal appreciates this and strives to recognise those who embody the entrepreneurial spirit. Celebrating Indian entrepreneurs who innovate, push existing boundaries, and are agents of change is critical not only for ensuring their success but also to motivate the next generation of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.

Finding and recognising these emerging talents is part of PayPal’s endeavour to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship. One such endeavour is the PayPal Entrepreneur Contest.
