In the face of a changing economic landscape and global uncertainties due to COVID-19, innovation is more important than ever.
We continue to seek partners that will become invaluable assets to an ecosystem focused on doing well and doing good. And today we are thrilled to officially welcome 12 bright startups with global ambitions to the award-winning Mastercard Start Path program, from a financial literacy platform for kids to a data-driven approach to delivering credit to the underserved.
Founders of Start Path companies launch businesses for many reasons, whether it’s a pure desire to lead, to provide value to customers or to democratize finance. “Today fintech leaders, in particular, are refocusing on the reasons they started their business in the first place,” said Amy Neale, Senior Vice President, Start Path and Fintech, Mastercard, at a webinar hosted by Plug & Play, a platform that connects technology startups and corporations, that focused on the impact of COVID-19 on corporate-startup partnerships.
