Mobile Payments is one of the hottest industries globally today. The advent of electronic money movement, coupled with the ubiquity of mobile handsets in the market promises convergence of two industries which will lead to a transformation in certain segments of the financial services space. Mobile Payments is attracting professionals from divergent industries… from experts in technology to wireless and handset providers to microfinance, alternative payments and banking professionals. Some people claim that the intersection of mobile and finance has already, and will continue to, transform people’s lives, change the way business is conducted, and significantly impact GDP growth on a global scale. The industry is nascent, offering the opportunity for new innovations. It is also complex, providing challenges around regulatory constraints, consumer adoption, ecosystem relationships, and business models.
The goals of the mPay Connect Mobile Payments Series are:
1. To educate professionals on topics around mobile payments
2. To provide networking and a hub for business development
3. To spur innovation in this industry
4. To bridge the gap between the US with the rest of the world in this field
