Grabbing Asia & Beyond: The Rise of Tech Platforms

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Earlier this year, Singapore-based Grab acquired Uber's assets in Southeast Asia and caught a ride on a fintech revolution that is underway throughout Asia. Dominant tech platforms like Grab, Alipay and WeChat Pay offer an ever-increasing range of financial and non-financial services, integrated via a frictionless payments layer. Consumers, merchants and small businesses can now use GrabPay to accept mobile payments across Southeast Asia as it’s taking steps to become the region’s leading fintech platform and the next superapp. In this keynote case study on the impact of tech platforms in Asia, hear directly from the executives who are leading Grab's foray into fintech and explore the implications the rise of Asian tech platforms might have for the US and global marketplace.
