The Visa Everywhere Initiative (VEI) began like a startup Minimum Viable Product with a simple, powerful idea: startups help solve business challenges in new ways. VEI quickly grew from the MVP “Demo Day”-style event at SXSW 2015 to a global program that has launched startup partnerships touching nearly every part of its business. Working with the startup ecosystem is evolving and amplifying the best of Visa’s innovation brand and culture in line with its highest strategic priorities. SVP Shiv Singh, VEI’s mastermind and founder, opens up about the platform’s evolution, effects on Visa and what other Global 2000 companies can learn from the Visa experience.
