Forrester Research predicts that the US mobile payments market will grow to $90 Billion by 2017. Come join the Mobile Payments NYC Meetup to learn how.
Our September meetup will feature Reetika Greewal and Josh Kuzon from Silicon Valley Bank's payments strategy team. They bring unique insight from multiple angles... As a bank, SVB provides both card issuing and merchant acquiring services to its customers. As a partner to startups, they provide financial services to many fast growing companies (http://www.svb.com/accelerator/) serving the mobile payments ecosystem.
We'll discuss SVB's own payments efforts, their Commerce Innovated (http://www.commerceinnovated.com/) program with MasterCard, and what Reetika and Josh see throughout the payments ecosystem.
