Founding Benefactor: Mastercard

Start ups within the payments industry often find it difficult to find the right level of guidance, education and support to help them develop their businesses. It is therefore refreshing to find this type of business guidance at The Catalyst and MasterCard is keen to lend its support. We look forward to working with all the members of the Emerging Payments Association to make this innovation hub a success.

We are delighted to be investing in what I see as the most effective way of bringing about change by becoming a Benefactor of the Emerging Payments Association’s (EPA) Project Rome. This logically follows closely on the heels of the Group becoming the the first alternative commercial lender to become an Associate Member of the British Bankers' Association.
