Mastercard Selects Diverse Group For Latest Start Path Program
Mastercard has announced the list of startup companies chosen to participate in its Mastercard Start Path program, a group the company is calling its “most diverse class” ever.
Mastercard revealed the list in a recent announcement, including startups that span a range of verticals. Those partaking in the program, which aims to support later-stage FinTech and technology startups, total 11 firms selected from five countries.
The lineup includes Railsbank, which provides businesses with access to a global banking network via application program interface (API) technology; Sensibill, which digitizes receipts to integrate into digital banking platforms; and Zeta Optima, an employee claims, fuel card and medical allowance services provider.
One startup, AID:Tech, deploys blockchain technology for digital entitlements. Others — like Flutterwave, which supports businesses’ and banks’ digital payment acceptance across Africa, and Mobeewave, which enables smartphones to accept contactless payments without external hardware — focus on payments acceptance.
