Let’s Disrupt Money

MEDICI

$15 Trillion dollars of retail transactions are the breeding ground for innovation today - from contactless payments to mobile wallets - so much has been put at stake. The rules of the game are changing with the changing customer behaviour. Can banks, fintech incumbents and retailers compete against nimble startups and payment tech firms creating fine product experiences through mobility, cloud and analytics.

Innovation in technology and access to data is bringing a new generation of marketplace lenders thereby curbing the additional costs of borrowing and lending brought upon by intermediaries such as banks. Best practices, development tools and excellent fintech APIs are enabling big and small companies to create world class mobile apps in fintech space. The allure of virtual currencies bring so much promise making government regulators wonder whether they should allow such currencies to penetrate the mainstream. Beacons, NFC, QR codes and other technologies are making mobile commerce a mainstream reality with retail merchants adopting omni-channel strategies democratized by mobile/cloud/analytics.

To discuss this disruption in a live, in-person platform, industry experts are taking part in an exclusive Track of The Money Event to be held on 9th of September at CTIA’s super mobility week in Las Vegas. To know more about the event backed by Let’s Talk Payments, click here
