During the Selection Day event, these are the final companies and startups selected to proceed to Visa Innovation Program.

The Program will encourage participants to follow a human-centered design approach and will leverage co-creation and open innovation methodologies in an effort to tailor their existing solutions as per specific needs and challenges of the market.

Fintechs will also be encouraged to leverage Visa Developer Platform (VDP) which provides simplified and user-friendly access to many of Visa’s most in-demand products and services through APIs, allowing anyone to transform great ideas into new digital commerce experiences, while at the same time meeting industry standards.
