The Challenge

A showcase of female entrepreneurship 


Women now make up 40% of new entrepreneurs in the United States.

But they are underrepresented in the fintech and payments marketplace. Mastercard, in partnership with unbound, is eager to encourage female entrepreneurship in this space and to help best-in-class, female-founded, later-stage technology startups to survive… and thrive!

At unbound Miami, 30 & 31 October, Mastercard will host a female founders challenge - a “pitch” before a panel of judges. Promising companies will be in with a chance to join Mastercard Start Path; a program that helps startups from all over the world to scale their companies. Since 2014, Start Path has given 150 companies access to mentors and role models across Mastercard’s global ecosystem of experts and customers, who help them solve key operational challenges and provide opportunities for partnerships. 

The Challenge will take place at 5:30pm on Day 1 on the Main Stage.
