Visa Launches Program to Give $2.5 Billion in Grants to Women-Owned Start-Ups

The Visa Everywhere Initiative is a global innovation program that tasks start-ups to solve the payment challenges of tomorrow, further enhance their own product propositions and provide visionary solutions for the company's vast network of partners. Their first-ever Women's Global Edition celebrates women founders and co-founders who are changing the world by solving business and social challenges.

The program was launched in March 2021 to celebrate International Women’s Day, and the competition received nearly 1,300 submissions of women-founded fintech and social impact organizations from over 140+ countries.
