Mastercard has announced its latest Start Path programme – the company’s global effort to support later-stage FinTech and tech startups.

The 11 selected companies, including ShieldPay, Flutterwave, Goodworld and Mobeewave, are developing new ways to use blockchain, protect digital identity, digitise donations and manage healthcare data, amongst other solutions. “The diversity of Start Path proves how quickly the pace of innovation is happening in so many areas,” says Amy Neale, Vice President, Mastercard Start Path. “Providing a range of companies with the resources and introductions they need to scale allows us to enable new ways to build the future of commerce together.”

These companies will work with Start Path against a plan to help them scale. Applications for the next six-month virtual programme will be accepted until Monday, 15th January 2018. This is open to startups who are rethinking banking, payments and commerce and have raised a significant seed or Series A round of investment.
