Visa Everywhere Initiative (VEI) was launched in 2015. Its program has helped startups from over 100 countries collectively raise more than $2.5 billion in funding, addressing one of the biggest challenges early-stage entrepreneurs face. The VEI network includes 8,500 startups worldwide that continue to grow every year.

VEI looks for creative and determined entrepreneurs who help communities by solving their payment and commerce challenges faced by businesses. This year’s program includes startups using cryptocurrency and Visa Direct in innovative ways.

Fintech startups across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa are invited to sign up and access Visa’s network. Finalists will join in Qatar this November for the VEI finals. Winners will receive USD 45,000 and the opportunity to collaborate with a global brand like Visa.

Every year, the scope of VEI is expanded to engage with unique startups and solve unique problems in the world of payments.

This year’s program includes startups using cryptocurrency and Visa Direct. This payment solution can help businesses move money to billions of endpoints worldwide via card and account rails in innovative ways. Finalists from across the world driving economic growth will converge in Qatar this November for the VEI finals.
