Watch Dwolla and Chirpify founders, Fed VP talk at KCnext event (Video)

July 17, 2012 by

To complement our previous coverage of GO – The Future of Mobile Payments, we present video from the event, which was hosted July 9 in Kansas City, Mo. by KCnext- The Technology Council of Greater Kansas City.

At the event, Chirpify founder and CEO Chris TesoFederal Reserve Bank of Kansas City senior vice president Barb Pacheco and Dwolla founder and CEO Ben Milne discussed what they’re doing with mobile payments and looked at the future of the field.

Whereas last week’s recap of the proceedings focused mostly on overarching themes and drew heavily from the panel discussion that made up the second half of the event, the video above covers the first half, during which the speakers took about 20 minutes apiece to tell the stories of their organizations and discuss their current endeavors. (Note: technical difficulties prevented us from recording the second half.)

Teso, whose Portland startup earlier this year launched its Twitter commerce platform, speaks first. Pacheco, who heads up the financial services division of the United States central bank’s 10th district, talks second. Milne, whose Des Moines startup is four years into the process of building an online payments network, rounds out the lineup. Journalist Ben Paynter, who served as emcee, offers brief comments before each speaker. 

For more on Teso, Pacheco and Milne’s discussion of the future of mobile payments, see our previous coverage of the KCnext function: “Panelists focus on simplicity, security in meeting of mobile payments minds“.
