Tracking the consumer evolution of financial services

Congratulations to Obopay on being invited to World Economic Forum

Obopay are the only financials services company amongst ‘technology pioneers’ that are invited to this years forum that kicks off Wednesday this week in Davos, Switzerland.  Congratulations to Obopay. [emphasis mine]

Q. Why is Obopay going to the WEF?
Every year WEF recognizes approximately 20 technology pioneers and asks them to attend Davos. This year there were 26 companies recognized – of those 11 were IT companies, the rest were health, energy, or other. We were the only financial services company recognized this year.

The forum is always interesting and the coverage is much easier from afar now, using youtube, and their own video delivery which will be updated on their site.

This years focus is In response to new priorities, the organizing theme for the 40th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in 2010 is a call to action, “Improve the State of the World: Rethink, Redesign, Rebuild”.

  2. @Thomas …. I believe they are the only one in the 20 nominated by WEF. Certainly there are many others there – wish I was one of them 🙂

  3. Congrats to Obopay on the recognition of your innovation and social impact.

    We’re also a financial startup Tech Pioneer, but we’re from the 2009 class.
