Visa, the global electronic payment giant, has announced a partnership with Fintech District, an Italian community of national and international stakeholders in the FinTech ecosystem. The partnership aims to further expand Visa’s network in Italy, allowing them to strengthen ties to the Italian FinTech scene and contribute to the growth of the sector.
Fintech District currently has over 250 FinTech members, many of which have revolutionized the payments market with new business models. The organization aims to support both Italian startups and new international companies by promoting the sharing of best practices, partnerships around technology, access to international capital, and communication with relevant parties in other countries.
