Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
PayKey is a Social Payments Solution enabling banks to provide their users with peer-to-peer payment options just when they are needed most – when they are engaged in social interactions. At the core of PayKey’s solution is the patent pending Mobile Payment Keyboard™. This unique keyboard seamlessly integrates with the mobile banking application, enabling users to initiate and complete the transaction without having to leave the social interaction and switch to a different app
How are you different?
PayKey is the only solution that bridges the gap between social and banking. Other P2P transfer solutions require the on-boarding to a dedicated app thus provide less initiative and less contextual user experience.

What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?
Millennials spend most of their time online and in Social Networks. However, today, in order to make a P2P transfer to a friend or a family member they need to leave the social conversation and use their bank application or a dedicated electronic wallet solution. Banks, while being disrupted by new financial technologies, are constantly searching for innovative solutions that will appeal to the lifestyle and needs of the Millennials.
