Las Vegas, United States, May 18th, 2015
Pri-Num (Prime Numbers) is the first Ukrainian IT startup to have attended Collision Conference (Las Vegas, NV), which attracts representatives from Google, Facebook, Nasdaq, Forbes, The Financial Times, and The Wall Street Journal.
Collision Conference is organized by a major European IT conference – Web Summit, which The Wall Street Journal calls “Davos for geeks” and The New York Times – “a grand conclave of the tech industry’s high priests”.
Pri-Num was founded in June 2013 in Kyiv by Eugene Zimin, an experienced IT entrepreneur, and a team of top experts in mobile commerce.
“We are certainly proud to have been selected among the best startups in the world. It’s about time for the Ukrainian developers to declare themselves in full-scale, demonstrating everything that they can offer to the world. During our 10 days trip to California, Pri-Num’s team held meetings with new partners and potential investors. We are particularly encouraged by a personal meeting with the senior vice president of Infrastructure, Google”.
Pri-Num has developed a platform for mobile commerce— PrimeKit* (patent pending), which is focused on providers of mobile wallets: mobile operators, banks and merchants. PrimeKit* allows them to deploy their own efficient solutions for mobile wallets and enables owners of mobile devices with a wallet to safely use digital keys to access different mobile services: payments for goods and services, loyalty programs, access controls, tickets.
The platform also allows existing mobile applications to access digitized cards stored in a secure domain or downloaded from a cloud storage, and uses different technologies for contactless services: Near Field Communications (NFC), Host Card Emulation (HCE), bar codes and QR-codes.
“We try to connect merchants and consumers in the most efficient and mutually valuable way by leveraging data science and behavioral analytics. Our long-term goal is to create an integrated social network where users of mobile wallets will be able to exchange, convert and share assets to collect and data analysis and scoring”.
