Mastercard will make a financial investment in Marqeta as the two companies look to deepen their global partnership and collaboration
Marqeta, the global modern card issuing platform, and Mastercard announced an extended global partnership to expand into new geographies, open access to new products, and launch additional card programs together. As part of this partnership, Mastercard has also made a financial investment in Marqeta.
This new agreement represents a deeper global collaboration between Marqeta and Mastercard. Since 2014, Marqeta and Mastercard have been working together to help fintechs, digital banks and commerce disruptors across North America and Europe bring innovative card products and programs to market. Beginning in Asia Pacific, the two companies will expand their collaboration into multiple new geographies, optimizing for global scale and driving efficiencies across their businesses to better serve the market. Mastercard will help expedite Marqeta’s international expansion by streamlining its global network certification process, which governs which providers are allowed to process payments internationally through the Mastercard network.
