“Startups have the power to significantly change and disrupt industries by bringing new and innovative products to market. Nowhere is this truer than in the payments industry,” said ETA CEO Jason Oxman. “Many of the titans of today were the startups of yesterday. That’s why we are focused on bringing leading incubators and their startups to center of the show floor at TRANSACT, where payments industry executives from industry leaders meet to chart a path towards the future.”
NextGen Park will include space for the incubators and their startups to host meetings, showcase their products and network with payments technology companies on the TRANSACT show floor. Leaders from the five incubators will also participate in a roundtable discussion on the morning of April 18 from the Trustwave Keynote Stage. The panel discussion will explore new developments within the payments industry and present unique perspectives and focus on fintech start-ups and the ecosystem at large.
TRANSACT, April 17-19, 2018, will bring together all parts of the payments ecosystem – from ISOs/VARs to ISVs and large financial institutions to technology companies, to meet, see what’s new, and learn what it takes to grow.
