WEX attends MasterCard’s Start Path event
Noelia and Tim from the WEX leadership team attended the final stages of the MasterCard Start Path immersion week in Dublin last month.
MasterCard’s Start Path is an accelerator programme for startups in the Fintech space with a track record of success in helping startups to scale their businesses. It provides access to MasterCard’s global ecosystem allowing startups to break into new markets through relationships with MasterCard’s customers, including WEX.
During the application process for the Start Path programme, startups are asked to provide a details of their proposed solution. Those accepted onto the programme need to demonstrate that the solution is very competitive, targets a sizable market, has a team of at least 5 people working on it with strong domain or technical expertise and has recently secured seed or series A investment.
As a part of the programme startups take part in two immersion weeks, where they get the opportunity to work with industry experts and to pitch to MasterCard’s global card issuers.
We are pleased to work with MasterCard on the Start Path programme here in Europe. The recent immersion week in Dublin gave our team a chance to meet with potential technology partners at the forefront of industry innovation.
We’re now excited to be working with some of the travel startups to bring their offerings, which include payment automation and bot booking solutions, to you. Watch this space for future updates!
