Nick Brown

CEO
Clear Purchase

Nick is a technical expert with 30 years of experience in the payment infrastructure industry. He has worked on many of the biggest systems around the world that process real-time financial transactions, mostly credit/debit cards, as well as running huge ATM/POS networks. This included the implementation of the VISA Debit Card system at VISA International in 1996. He has also been involved in writing national and international standards for data security for the financial services industry. He is currently focused on solving the global Financial Inclusion challenge in developing countries, by finding innovative new ways of delivering financial services to the poorest 3 Billion people on this planet, those earning around $2 per day. To this end, he has founded Clear Purchase, which is building a new payment Switch that can viably accommodate the smallest fund transfers and micro-purchases, with the goal of creating a truly cashless economy.
