Innovation and disruption have never been so prominent to change the world we live in. It is even more important in payments, commerce and fintech. Now that the media have understood innovation sells subscriptions and brings eyeballs, It is everywhere and it is starting to get difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Fortunately, PayKademy is not taking for granted what you can read or watch. We are meeting and talking to the people involved with these trends making them a reality. Silicon Valley is a place unique for its capability to create great new ventures but it had become also a place where foreign companies have established a presence or are visiting on a regular basis giving us a unique position to meet many innovators from around the world.

If we look back just a few years ago, Fintech startups were all about replacing banks and cutting the middle man but our industry is not like any other. Regulation and compliance have a huge impact on what we can and can’t do and these constraints/perimeters' parameters define the innovation landscape. So today, it is more about collaboration than real competition.


In this session, we wanted instead to do a summary of the latest trends relying on facts and drilling down into some of these trends to give not only perspective but real insights. Blockchain and crypto-currencies, Funding including ICOs, Lending, Cybersecurity, Banks Digitization, Regulation, AI, Corporate Innovation or Mobile Payments, we will provide data that will help to see Innovation from a different angle.
