RainCheck picks up the Visa Everywhere Initiative Award for the Commercial Challenge solving problems for Merchants

Visa, the global payments technology company, today announced the winners of its 2017 Australia and New Zealand Visa’s Everywhere Initiative, a global innovation program aimed at start-ups.

Visa’s Everywhere Initiative challenges start-ups to use the suite of Application Programming Interface (API) available through the Visa Developer platform to solve payments challenges and accelerate the future of commerce, leveraging Visa’s world-class network.

“At Visa we believe that no single organisation can have all the answers – our collective future will be much brighter if we collaborate. Much like the need for diversity within organisations to enable new ways of thinking and unlock creativity, it’s important that businesses small and large work together to define and enable our digital future,” said Stephen Karpin, Group Country Manager for Visa in Australia, New Zealand & South Pacific.

At the pitch event, held as part of the Women in Payments symposium in Sydney, RainCheck took home the award for The Everywhere Commercial Challenge: this challenge asked startups to leverage Visa APIs to augment their products and ultimately drive more powerful commerce experiences for merchants.
It’s been an exciting few weeks for RainCheck picking up two very prestigious awards.
