Some people say this is “The Year of Mobile Payments” and others argue this is just the beginning. Mobile payments are growing and the US mobile payments market is predicted to grow to $90 Billion by 2017.

For the past few years, CardFlight team members have been organizing and hosting the NYC Mobile Payments Meetup to bring together developers and mobile payment experts, including VCs, executives and entrepreneurs, all sharing the mutual passion for Payments and Fintech.

The final Meetup of 2015 will feature Bill DeSimone, Head of Acquirer Relations and General Manager of Strategic Relations at JPMorgan Chase & Co. Bill will discuss the payments landscape in NYC and elsewhere, share more about Chase’s recently announced Chase Pay mobile payments product, and also discuss predictions for where the market will evolve from here.

Come join us on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator – 500 7th Avenue, 17th Floor. For more details and sign up visit:
