Three Startups Addressing Money Ecosystem Challenges



Liberty Madison (#ThatTechGirl) and Greg Viloria (SocialGreg) visited the annual Future of Money & Technology Summit last week in San Francisco Japantown. As you can imagine, a lot of Bitcoin talk was dominating the air there but we found three startups in the eCommerce ecosystem moving the dial upwards challenging the existing money system -- frictionless payments (@Pay), personal finance management (Nerd Wallet) and cyber-security (Socure). Take a look at what our stalkers #ThatTechGirl and SocialGreg found.
