Worlds Largest Network of Payment Executives Opens First Chapter in Canada

The BayPay Forum Expands Global Footprint with Chapter in Toronto

Redwood Shores, CA, March 23, 2015. The BayPay Forum, one of the worlds largest innovation and education networking organizations for the payment and ecommerce industries, today announced they have opened their first Canadian chapter in Toronto. BayPay has over 10,000 members in the U.S. and Europe.

The Canadian payments industry is extremely robust, adds Ricky Ranjan, vice president of sales for Proxama North America. Our influence extends well beyond Canadian borders, but there has always been a need for local executives to meet in person and share their concerns, viewpoints and suggestions on the future direction of the industry. Networking like this is not just a social activity; it has the possibility of accelerating action throughout the industry. Toronto is a great place to start, but I can certainly see new Canadian chapters opening in other cities pretty quickly.

BayPay seeks out potential chapters from groups of executives who are looking to duplicate the Forums successful model in Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The chapters meet monthly with social as well as professional events. Chapter panels are designed to bring together speakers from government, business, and regulatory organizations throughout Europe and the U.S., as well as the local markets.

“Our mission is to connect executives, startups, and businesses, with ideas and opportunities in the payment and ecommerce industries,” explains Daniel Chatelain, Managing Director at the Bay Pay Forum.While the breadth of our outreach is based online, there is no substitute for meeting in person. We are committed to opening more chapters in cities where there are large contingents of executives looking to benefit from face-to-face networking and local events. It is the way we started BayPay in Silicon Valley and it is still the backbone of the organization.




At the BayPay Forum, we connect.  We connect executives, startups, and businesses, with ideas and opportunities in the payment and commerce industry. 

We are the only networking organization that accelerates not just innovation but action by facilitating networking, education, and action on emerging trends.  Our more than 10,000 U.S. and European executive members benefit from face-to-face meetings; panel discussions; a technology platform that provides international education, interaction and information on a scalable level; and trade show activities designed to provide members with exposure they could not achieve on their own.

In addition, we seek out and develop communities focused on innovation in cities throughout both continents. Topics of interest are on local and international issues in the mobile and social commerce, cybercrime, and digital media and entertainment industries.

We have several levels of memberships going from free to premium and provide additional services to help companies small and large expand their business through awareness, business development or acquisitions. For additional information, visit
