Viva Technology confirms the participation of Dan Schulman, CEO of PayPal and Eric S. Yuan, founder & CEO of Zoom

Paris, May 27, 2021 – Dan Schulman and Eric Yuan have at least one thing in common: each has helped revolutionize an industry. After an extraordinary year marked by an exponential increase in the use of their respective platforms, they’ll be on hand to share their experiences with VivaTech audiences.

Dan Schulman will discuss the rapid transformation of the financial sector and the role of digital currencies in our changing world, including the move to a cashless society, the digital wallet opportunity, and many other fintech trends the global pandemic has accelerated. Importantly, he will address the need for responsible innovation to ensure an inclusive recovery.

Last year, Zoom became a household word in our workplaces and homes (which frequently became, thanks to Covid restrictions, indistinguishable from each other). From infatuation to saturation, from wonder to distrust, the platform created by Eric S. Yuan has been the subject of much discussion. Zoom’s founder will provide an unvarnished history of a uniquely eventful year and what's to come with the hybrid workforce.
