Visa Innovation Program Cohort #3 Demo Day

January 18, 2022

The 3rd Cohort is already graduated from Visa Innovation Program to create more value in the Fintech ecosystem. This Demoday started with General Manager of Visa Turkey, Merve Tezel's opening speech. She emphasized the power of collaboration in Fintech. After she remarked on the future of Fintech, I've done a short recap of the program so far. The legacy of this program is getting larger at every Cohort we deliver.

Snapshot of Visa Innovation Program Turkey Since The Inception

Vısa Innovation Program has received 301 startups over the last three years, 15 selected and graduated from the program. These startups set up POCs with Visa and other stakeholders, which you can see live currently. Our startups raised $6M to date, but we expect to see exponential growth.

This program brings a larger audience for innovation, including trainers and mentors. Many companies are involved in setting up new partnerships or enabling these startups' growth. This list of ecosystem partners and supporters keeps growing as well.
