Dear BayPay Members,
Now that we are almost all "mobilized" and always on, many companies are focusing on bringing traffic to merchants. Customer engagement becomes the key word and the companies that will find the secret of making it work consistently and who can scale will be highly rewarded.
For this first BayPay event of the year 2013, we have invited executives from several emerging companies who are focusing their business on providing to small merchants affordable solutions while building at the same time a consumer community they can bring to merchants to negotiate better deals for their consumer crowd.
For this event, we will be hosted by our sponsor Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati in Palo Alto, California.
We will start by presentations of these companies to get a grasp of their brilliant vision, their successes and maybe challenges and how they solve the infamous chicken & egg problem that more often than not slows down the growth of most payment and commerce startups. We will end the session with a Q&A session with the audience.
Bring your business cards, as there will be time to network prior to and following the focused discussion.
We are waiting for a few confirmations but we have already confirmed for you:
Mani Kulasooriya, CEO of Leapset
Ken Fenyo, CEO of You.Net
Jason Gardner, CEO of Marqeta
John Hennessy, SVP of Mobeam
This event is sponsored by:

The BayPay Forum
About The BayPay Forum: BayPay is an organization focused on Innovation in Payments and Commerce. We organize events on topics we believe represent business opportunities for our 14,000+ entrepreneurs or senior executives at startups and established companies in the Bay Area, around the country and internationally. We have opened several chapters with the support of other passionate executives to bring to people the latest trends and the business opportunities to succeed in a thriving environment. Examples of these topics are mobile and social commerce, wallets, loyalty, authentication, compliance, cybercrime, digital-media, international remittance, future of banking, crypto-currencies, Blockchain, etc.
Attending or watching BayPay events will give you the competitive edge to anticipate disruption and connect with like-minded executives close to where you live, work or travel on a regular basis. We could look like many meetups here and there but our focus on changes in regulation, technology and investments to discover new business opportunites makes us a great tool for executives to boost their strategy, products, career or business and personal network.
