Flywire Panel Session Details:

FinTech Coming to a Doctor Near You
Thursday, September 12th; 10:00 - 11:00 AM
Boston Public Library | Rabb Lecture Hall
700 Boylston St, Boston

Why isn’t paying your doctor as easy as paying at a restaurant (or with Uber!)? This session brings together the managing partner of a leading venture capital firm with leaders from two local startups that are solving the problems of booking appointments, understanding what’s owed, and paying at checkout (or later). They will discuss the next big verticalization of payments and what the medical experience will look like for patients in the future.

  • John Talaga, EVP & GM Healthcare, Flywire
  • David Jegen, Managing Partner, F-Prime Capital
  • Rajesh Vodiiraju, Founder / CEO, HealthiPASS

Personalization of Payments in a Purpose-Driven Market
Thursday, September 12; 12:00 - 1:00 PM
Babson Boston Campus | 9th Floor
100 High Street, Boston

Solving industry and consumer payment challenges can no longer be addressed with a one-size fits all approach. With consumers and payers having more choice and control than ever before, the payments industry is undergoing a massive shift. This session will dive into the current state of global payments and the opportunities on the horizon to create impactful and inclusive outcomes with personalized payment solutions.

  • Mike Massaro, CEO, Flywire
  • Michelle Ziolkowski, SVP, Head of Global Payables: Treasury, Merchant & Payment Solutions, Wells Fargo

Why is Boston the City of Champions for FinTech?
Thursday, Sept. 12th; 3:30 - 4:30 PM
Harvard Club of Boston | 38th Floor
1 Federal St, Boston

The Bay Area is no longer the epicenter of FinTech. Payment technology startups like BlueSnap, Flywire and MineralTree have joined established players such as Bank of America in calling Boston home, and all of these companies are now revolutionizing the industry from the east coast. A panel of payments industry experts will discuss why Boston is a hotbed for FinTech investment and how these companies are currently addressing the most significant challenges in the industry. 

  • Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO, BlueSnap
  • Chris Grosse, Vice President, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
