Chris Versace’s PowerTalk: Matt Jacobson »
Welcome to PowerTalk, where we talk with CEOs, COOs and other key business people at public and private companies as well as other subject matter experts.
This week we’re talking with someone I’ve known for some time - Matt Jacobson, Venture Partner at Acta Wireless. Matt’s expertise is in mobile. mobile payments and mobile commerce. In the interview we cover:
- how people are paying with their mobile devices – be it with PayPal, Square, their Starbucks mobile app, Google Wallet and a host of others.
- the Cashless Consumption PowerTrend shift including the companies offering payment apps as well as companies like Verifone and Ingenico that make the point of sale equipment.
- Plus integrated mobile commerce like couponing and Apple’s Passbook offering.
As you’ll hear, Matt thinks we’re in the early innings of mobile commerce and a lot is going to happen…. Click here to play the interview:
