Mobile payments innovation from the Pacific Northwest

This just in: recent graduates of my alma mater may now have a shot at launching a career in mobile payments without the need to leave the Portland metro area.

Maybe it’s because I’ve been a little too busy lately, and haven’t been following Scott’s blog closely enough, but today was the first time I came across Paywi, a mobile payments startup based in Portland, Oregon . If you recall, a different mobile payments startup from the Pacific Northwest made clear their strategy for solving the infamous chick ‘n’ egg problem by starting off with a focus on a rather specific vertical - Craigslist. Paywi’s deployment strategy - arguably the toughest challenge for anyone trying to launch a service like this — wasn’t clearly stated on their website.
