What a Visa Everywhere Initiative pitch looks like

When we evaluate submissions for the Visa Everywhere Initiative, we look for startups that have ideas relevant to Visa’s business and clients, a product in market, proof of traction, and funding from external investors. View our terms and conditions for more information.

Get a little inspiration for your own pitch by checking out the video below of our past winner, Moov Financial. Moov won multiple prizes in 2021. In 2022, Moov became certified and licensed as an acquiring processor with Visa, and in 2023 raised capital for their series B. This is an excellent opportunity to see how successful startups have presented their ideas to gain traction with Visa, judges, and external audiences.
