FinTech startup company INAMO creates a selection of wearable technology that offers functional EMC-enabled contactless payment methods. Founder Peter Colbert is an active surfer and a skilled software engineer who came up with this idea when he forgot his wallet at a coffee shop.

INAMO's CURL wearable is a wristwatch and it incorporates a passive micro-card into a piece's silicone wristband. The waterproof band can then be used as a debit card to have funds loaded and reloaded with any accounts that are functional with ApplePay and GooglePay. The INAMO wearable pieces are developed specifically for those who live an active lifestyle -- it aims to fuse other daily elements such as shopping to that it all functions together seamlessly.
