STEPPING STONES

INNOVATION PROJECT 2017

karen-webster-ip-2017
Payments and commerce have a long and storied history – one that’s as long and as rich as mankind itself. From seashells to bitcoin, the Emporium to Amazon, the merchant banks of Babylonia to the digital banks of today, the way we pay, who we pay and how we pay has evolved to reflect the needs of business and society throughout the millennia.
Over the last two decades, however, there have been significant events that have forced a shift in the direction of payments, commerce and retail in a very dramatic way. These stepping stones are the result of new technologies that have inspired innovators and incumbents alike to reimagine the value that can be delivered along the payments and commerce spectrum.

In 2012, PYMNTs.com launched The Innovation Project – a stepping stone itself to how the issues that will shape the future of payments and commerce are debated live, in an intimate format and a highly unique setting by those who have – and are – placing these stepping stones before us. So, we feel that it’s only natural, on this, our 5-year anniversary – to debate the 8 Stepping Stones that have defined our journey so far by those who know them best – as well as those whose new ideas and innovative technologies are using them to charge forward in a new direction.
