Mastercard today announces the creation of Accelerate, a new programme to drive growth at scale for the fast-evolving FinTech industry. The initiative is designed to support the ambitions of players in the FinTech sector through tailored support arrangements including access to insight, tools, technology and investment to support innovation. Designed to operate alongside the successful Start Path programme, Accelerate broadens and deepens Mastercard’s engagement with the payment Fintech community including the next generation of digital banks.

Tools include dedicated Mastercard licensing specialists to support market expansion, in-market access to account expertise to fast track growth, and unparalleled ability to connect to comprehensive processing assets and tools. Resources will include Mastercard Advisors for in-market execution support, data insights and analytics.  The program also provides market-based resources for related strategic investing and flexible early-stage collateral requirements.

“Creating this platform is the next step in our long-term focus on being partner of choice for FinTech companies around the world” commented Ann Cairns, Vice Chairman, Mastercard. “Globally, the Fintech community is one of the most vibrant and fast-paced, and Mastercard is committed to help these fast growing businesses unleash their full potential.

The market opportunity for ambitious digital banking businesses and Fintechs is clear and Mastercard is prepared to help them seize it.
