Today, Visa, the global leader in payments technology, announced Payswiff as the grand winner of India’s first Visa Everywhere Initiative (VEI) challenge. With participation from more than 260 fintech and 400+ applications, a record number for any VEI program outside the US, the Initiative had challenges focused on digital issuance for driving access to payments and credit, increasing small merchants’ acceptance and digitally transforming B2B payments.

While Payswiff won for its solution of providing end-to-end omnichannel electronic payments to banks, SMEs, and enterprise merchants, Phi Commerce won the challenge on digital issuance through integrated payments across channels and Samunnati won the challenge on B2B payments for a solution specializing in the Agri-value chain.

After seven months of scouting for the most talented fintech across the country by hosting roadshows, the pitch day was held in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad for shortlisting fintech under each of the three challenges.

In light of the current pandemic, Visa invited nine finalists for a virtual presentation to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, including executives from Visa, their partners, and leading fintech organizations.

The entire VEI journey has been an exciting experience for us at Visa. It has also been a culmination of our last three years of fintech outreach – starting with Visa Developer Platform in 2017, followed by the Visa Ready Program and Fintech FastTrack launches in 2019 as we continue to open up for business with Indian fintech and take them to a global stage, said Arvind Ronta, Head of Products for India & South Asia, Visa.

We congratulate the winners Payswiff, Phi Commerce, and Samunnati and are excited to work with them closely and help commercialize their solutions through Visa’s expertise and capabilities, added Arvind.

Since its inception in the US in 2015, VEI has expanded into a global platform with more than 6000+ participating startups, that have collectively raised over 2.5+ billion in funding, with more than 215 finalists and nearly 100 winners. The program has been rolled out in North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, touching over 100 countries.
