Galileo

Galileo powers North America’s leading fintechs—including Chime, KOHO, Robinhood, SoFi, Varo and many others—as well as the U.S.-based business of international powerhouses, such as Monzo, Paysafe, Revolut and TransferWise. Earlier this year, Galileo established offices in Mexico, where it is certified to support domestic issuers, and is now partnering with Mexican and Latin American fintech leaders.

Galileo’s commitment to removing complexity from payments has led to striking year-over-year success. During 2019, Galileo’s run rate topped 80 percent for the second straight year and first quarter 2020 growth exceeded 95 percent.

Speakers

Clay Wilkes

CEO of Galileo

Clay is the founder and CEO of Galileo, and the visionary behind its sophisticated global payment platform and APIs that set the industry standard for card issuing and digital banking.

Clay’s love of technology developed as a student while hunkered down in high school and university computer labs in his native Oregon. He launched his professional career developing communications and operating systems for Sperry, IBM and Novell. In 1994 Clay founded I-Link, which developed Voice Over IP and the first switchless voice network. As CEO, he took I-Link public and authored patents for VOIP.

With his wife, Clay founded The Galileo Foundation, providing opportunities for Galileo employees, clients and partners to engage with people worldwide who lack economic opportunity.

A dedicated humanitarian and environmentalist, Clay points to Galileo’s Core Values as the embodiment of what he believes as a business leader.

As in-country manager for Mexico, Tory Jackson is responsible for introducing Galileo’s robust APIs and deep payments experience to Mexico’s vibrant fintech community with the goal of collaborating to enable financial services innovations that benefit the Mexican people.
