The Future is Cashless & Accessible with Sesie Bonsi

FinTech is the merging of technology and financial services that aims to compete with the traditional financial system. Companies like CashApp, PayPal, Venmo have become recognizable representations of cashless transactions but they are not the only ones in the market...meet Bleu.

Bleu is a black-owned FinTech company that makes cashless transactions more accessible for merchants and their clients using a touchless payment system that leverages bluetooth technology to facilitate transactions. Through Bleu's network, consumers can browser nearby merchants, store their payment info and visit that merchants store front. Utilizing low-energy beacons, Bleu supports pre-paid transactions as well as in-store purchases.  The company's mission is to democratize payments so that merchants and customers have accessibility, flexibility, and autonomy in the way they choose to exchange values with each other

Join us as we learn more about Sesie, Bleu, and why he believes that wireless communication and the "internet of things" are not fads but the greatest technology to impact humans.
