Visa’s Everywhere Initiative in North America will begin accepting submissions on Saturday, March 11, 2017.


Start-ups are invited to submit their solutions to help uncover the “next big thing” in payments as the industry shifts from plastic to digital and new entrants join traditional payments stakeholders. The challenges include:


  • How can your company use connected devices to facilitate simpler, more seamless and powerful commerce experiences for consumers?
  • How can Visa APIs augment your company’s product or service offerings and ultimately drive more meaningful commerce or finance related experiences for customers?
  • How can you harness Visa capabilities and other third party services to create transformative commerce experiences at sporting events, transportation hubs or other venues where people congregate?


Visa’s Everywhere Initiative first launched in the U.S. in 2015 and quickly expanded into a global program with nearly 1,000 participating start-ups, which have collectively raised $1.7 billion in funding, with 60 finalists and 14 winners selected. For more information, please visit:
