Five payment acceptance start-ups stand among the 15 selected to meet Mastercard in the Lighthouse FINITIV program.

This Spring, the program returns to Denmark, Norway and Lithuania, where once again “acceptance start-ups,” or start-ups focused on helping merchants accept payments, stand out as the most prominent theme.
