MasterCard Accelerator for European Startups Announces May 16 Deadline

Are you a European startup with seed funding and a beta program ready to go?

If so, MasterCard’s Start Path Accelerator program may be the opportunity you’ve been looking for.

The Start Path Accelerator program will give up to eight startups the opportunity to spend four months in Dublin working with MasterCard. The companies will also be mentored by program partners like Asos and Capital One. The goal of the program is for each startup to develop a pilot project with MasterCard or a MasterCard partner during the period.
Startups will also receive €35,000 to help cover expenses while working in Ireland.
MasterCard says that companies participating in the program will have “direct access” to the company’s wealth of knowledge and experience. We also know that MasterCard’s knowledge and experience with incubators and accelerators likely has been enhanced through their work with other successful programs such as FinTech Collective and Techstars.
If you’re interested, there’s no time like the present to apply. The deadline for applications is Friday, May 16.
