ïƒ¨ Why did you attend the pitch session organized by Forinov for the Credit Mutuel group?
We would love to collaborate with Credit Mutuel group in order to allow cash flows from Chinese wallets using AliPay, WeChatPay and even many others, since our technology allows the acceptance of all existing wallets.
ïƒ¨ How have you heard about Forinov?
I met Forinov through social networks. Forinov is the French leader in facilitating collaborations between startups and large groups. This perfectly meets our needs as a startup to look for always more large companies to collaborate with.
ïƒ¨ What concrete benefit do you expect from using Forinov?
We want to be able to work with various large companies and offer a more flexible solution on specific issues on which we are specialized and therefore establish a win-win collaboration.

Today Silkpay is among the leaders in France in mobile payment connected with China via AliPay & WeChatPay. We have also deployed our solution in 11 countries in Europe. We plan to continue to develop in well-identified markets such as England, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, etc.
Our development strategy also includes collaborating with as many financial companies as possible given that our solution can be white label. We also plan to accept many other wallets. Today we work with Chinese ones, tomorrow our goal is to work with Korean, Japanese, Indian wallets, etc. but also with European wallets which are expanding here in Europe.
