We are Lightspeed

"We started this company because we weren't satisfied with the status quo. You shouldn't be either. It's not enough to just accept transactions and deliver receipts; our products should make your life easier and your customers happier. That philosophy runs through everything that we do."
- Dax Dasilva, CEO


We believe that commerce belongs to everyone. From the entrepreneurs who realize their dreams of starting a business to the storefronts and restaurants that project new perspectives onto our streets. Communities are shaped by those businesses.

Retailers and restaurateurs make our lives more enjoyable. At Lightspeed, we want to make their work more enjoyable.

With the right technology, business owners can sell more, make their customers happier, and actually make the world a better place.
