Gather Intelligence from Tech Startups, Entrepreneurs and Industry Veterans
Payment companies are shaking up financial services. Recent headlines have been dominated by news of significant acquisitions and partnerships among large companies, as well as startups encroaching on territory once controlled by banks. The banks and brands that once dominated the payment industry are feeling the pressure to keep up with nimble startups and innovative non-bank institutions.
So, if you cant beat em, join em.
The path to innovation might be one thats ultimately paved through strategic partnerships with, and investments in more nimble, niche product and non-bank companies.
Large banks have begun venture arms to invest in startups, many of them having developed technology to enable mobile payment adoption. Other banks have taken a lab approach to investigate areas of potential promise and stay up-to-speed on innovative ideas cropping up among eager young entrepreneurs. And the large networks, processors and acquirers are finding ways of expanding their own offerings through acquisitions, as the recent consolidation in the prepaid industry has demonstrated.
Through a series of panel discussions and one-on-one interviews with newsmakers, industry leaders and influencers, youll understand how banks are looking to benefit from the proliferation of payment start ups, and not get left behind. Additionally, experts will help attendees understand the implications of recent industry consolidation, public investments and mergers and acquisitions in recent years and what this means for their business. Attendees will come away with insights on working with big companies, small companies and what they can look forward to innovation continues to emerge from many corners of the world.
