Technology advancement and electronic-based business models are creating a disruption in today’s economy. One of these changes are in the innovation of digital payments as an alternative to conventional payment methods. Through digital payments, methods of recording, managing, and exchanging access to commerce, investment, and other daily life transactions have been changed and simplified. Exponential development of this newfound technology could accelerate financial inclusion through the speed, security, transparency, and cost efficiency that it could present in daily transactions.
However, many have not engaged in these systems despite its benefits.Even though some are hesitant to enter the ‘unknown’ world of digital payment, companies are slowly forced to follow the trend of payment digitalization to stay in the economy. This has created a new market for it which has led the digital payment industry to grow rapidly, pushing companies in the industry to strive its way to success. These companies are known to grow through IPOs, capital injections, or M&As. As a pioneer in Investment Banking competition in Indonesia, we would like to highlight the current trend by establishing “Embracing Cashless Society” as our theme. We intend to share that digital payment is another way to improve the economic system, while also introducing the rather new industry to our participants through cases and seminars.
