The Bancorp (headquartered in Wilmington, DE, with operations within Europe) is pleased to announce that it has joined MasterCard as a benefactor of The Catalyst, a new initiative being launched by the Emerging Payments Association (EPA).
Based in London, The EPA brings together companies across the emerging payments spectrum to help shape the future of the payments industry.

Qualifying members of the EPA become Rising Stars at no additional cost, getting access to workspace in London Bridge, mentoring, fundraising, specialist guidance, introduction to potential partners, and education and training to showcase new products.

This remarkable new initiative aligns perfectly with our longstanding and proven track record in helping nurture and support new, innovative payment and banking operators deliver compelling solutions to the financial services industry.
