Blackhawk Network Heads to the 2014 Innovation Project
The Innovation Project – a prestigious annual conference focused on payments and commerce – takes place on March 19-20, at Harvard University. This year’s theme is, “Rethink. Reset. Reinvent.” Top industry leaders will come together to discuss the future of retail and commerce, including its transformation by mobile devices, cloud technology and big data.
Blackhawk’s presence is strong at this invite-only event. We’re not only one of the sponsors, but also a participant in the forums and a finalist at the Innovator Awards.
Blackhawk Network’s CEO, Bill Tauscher, is joining nine other CEOs from the payments ecosystem to debate the future of payments and commerce. You can hear him on the panel, “The Reinvention of Payments: Who’s Driving It or Being Driven to Extinction.”
Tim Attinger, VP at Blackhawk Network, returns as a judge, listening and watching 12 teams compete to solve some of the industry’s most difficult questions at The ThinkAThon.
Blackhawk Network also has the honor of being nominated for an Innovator Award in the Best Prepaid Innovation category. We’re thrilled to be recognized alongside other prominent peers for our ground-breaking work in the prepaid industry. Winners will be announced today at the conference.
