The Harlem skin clinic on frederick Douglass Boulevard in New York City is not the first place you’d expect to run into Jack Dorsey. But on a snowy December afternoon, the 37-year-old CEO of Square and chairman of Twitter appears to be in his element far from San Francisco, where the two companies he co-founded are headquartered on adjacent city blocks. The clinic’s owner, Seven Brown, manages her business from her iPad, using Square’s Register app and Reader credit-card swiper. When she talks about them, she keeps using the same word: fantastic.
Dorsey dropped in on Brown because she was going to be participating in a panel that he was moderating at Harlem’s Apollo Theater that evening.
