Event Details

Almost 9 years ago, I started a business to allow small and mobile merchants to accept card payments (magstripe and EMV) anywhere using Wifi or their cellular phones to do so. While it was feasible at the time, I couldn't raise the money necessary to achieve this vision and after a while I had to cut my losses and do something else. I learned the hard way that vision and technology are important when you create a new venture but timing is as important.

Since then, the iPhone was created followed by Android and high speed networks became ubiquitous allowing rich applications to be deployed, among them payment applications for merchants.

In our continued study of the emerging Mobile Payments trend, our next event will be to discuss with experts from this industry what the impact is of having now mobile card acceptance devices like iPod touch, iPhone, Android tablets or specialized mobile POS terminals in store like the Apple Store or even for merchants banks never dreamed of (example of Girl Scouts selling each year their delicious Girl Scout Cookies).

Our event is hosted and sponsored by Silicon Valley Bank in Santa Clara. It will start at 6pm as usual. While it is commonly known that Silicon Valley Bank is dedicated to the technology, cleantech and life sciences industries, SVB also works with over 200 elite vineyards and wineries on the West Coast. We will have an opportunity to sample some of these wines.

Registration is opened now and we will post more details later.

A panel of 4 – 5 experts will discuss the business impact of different mobile payment solutions and retail transaction technologies.

The BayPay Forum



If you are a member of the payment industry, you are invited to join BayPay, a networking group of the Silicon Valley focused on payments and composed exclusively of members in the payment community or investors in this area. If you are not yet a member and would like to join, reply to this email to get your free membership with a quick description on how you fit in the payment industry. Even after all these years, the payments industry is still expanding in both mature and emerging markets worldwide as the industry adapts to new market opportunities. New technologies including contactless cards, cell phone integration, biometrics, RFID and strong authentication are emerging and potentially creating new challenges for both financial institutions and their customers. Prepaid cards, gift cards, new forms of payment like PayPal, are all vivid demonstrations of the vibrancy of new thinking in the payments industry. With wireless ubiquity now essentially a reality, transaction aggregation and micro payments become a necessity. As the financial industry and merchants provide more and more services online, phishing emerges as a problem that requires more education and communication with consumers.

Objective BayPay's primary goal is to provide a face-to-face professional networking forum for the regular exchange of views on these issues among active professionals within the payments industry who are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. An online BayPay group on Yahoo! provides opportunities for members to interact among themselves between regular face-to-face meetings.

BayPay Is a joint initiative of Glenbrook, Edgar Dunn & Company and Daniel Chatelain from QSecure, Inc. that is open to other companies or individuals contributions.

Membership To ensure an appropriate level of professional participation, membership in BayPay group is by invitation only. BayPay members invite others to join based upon their own judgment as to who could best contribute to the group. To subscribe please go here.
