Innovation Project 2015 — powered by PYMNTS.com, and held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on March 18-19 — brought together the best and brightest innovators in payments to discuss and debate the opportunities and obstacles at the intersections of payments and commerce.
This year’s theme “Innovation At The Intersections” was a nod to the complexities that is the payments and commerce landscape today. Complexity that is influenced by innovators in ecosystems outside of payments – retail, social, mobile, technology, security, banking, and even advertising – that are reshaping how payments is delivered – and even how visible it is. Over two days, established players, emerging disruptors and entrepreneurial visionaries from the world of payments and commerce came together to lead discussion of how their sectors are being disrupted and innovated in ways that will establish the framework for the industries for years — perhaps decades — to come.
This two-day event provided insight into what the most accomplished innovators and thought leaders had to say about the direction payments and commerce are headed, and how they will get there. From those conversations, we learned that the decisions we are making at intersections we are facing will chart our collective future in the decades to come. Decisions that we’ll no doubt be talking about next year. We hope to see you then.
