A Culture of Innovation
Ideas are the lifeblood of our company. We constantly challenge the established ways of doing things to find new ways to help our customers. This commitment has led to not only the world's fastest payments process network, but also to the development of some of today's most innovative products and services—from the "tap and go" convenience of PayPass to systems-wide solutions that help corporations fight fraud and manage their data more effectively. Here are a few examples of innovation in action:
Created for the sole purpose of generating new ideas and driving innovation, MasterCard Labs is charged with conceptualizing, testing, and bringing to market powerful new payments systems that will make transactions faster and easier than ever for our clients.
Sponsored by MasterCard Labs, Innovation Express brings together employees from different disciplines and locations for two days of fast and furious product development. The days are long, the competition fierce (but fun), and the results are nothing short of amazing.

Behind the Brand
Given that ours is one of the world's most recognizable brand names, it's understandable that many people think "credit card" when they hear "MasterCard." But as you might expect from the company known for pioneering dramatic changes in the world of commerce, MasterCard's range of business disciplines—and opportunities—reach far beyond the plastic. Here's a sampling:
Insights to move business forward

Because everyone deserves a chance
The MasterCard Foundation was created to promote financial inclusion and prosperity across the globe. It does this by promoting access to microfinance and youth education—the resources and tools that make all the difference in creating a better life for citizens in developing countries.
Security and Fraud Protection
Ensuring peace of mind
The exponential growth and complexity of payment options has made security and fraud protection mission-critical for today's financial institutions and merchants. MasterCard is an industry leader in safeguarding cardholder data through such innovations as the first tamper-evident signature panel, the use of three-dimensional holograms and advanced fraud prevention and detection technology.
