One of the hallmarks of a strong digital economy is knowledge sharing. A network of conferences and influencers must lead the distribution of information that will help us tackle problems like low credit card adoption that hold back ecommerce in the region.
That’s what we are trying to do here at Payfort, on this blog and elsewhere, by participating in conversations, interviewing exciting new leaders and sharing our own expertise with the community.
Social networks are instrumental in nudging that process along, especially Twitter which has always been a great way to fill your empty moments (if you have any) with incisive reading that can help your company.
