Visa joins Ohio-based Fintech71 to help accelerate payment innovation in the “Buckeye State”

first_imgVisa is excited to join the board of directors of Fintech71, an Ohio-based start-up accelerator focused on financial technology. Visa’s role in Fintech71 comes on the heels of Visa’s acquisition of CardinalCommerce earlier this year, a Mentor, Ohio-based digital commerce authentication company, with more than 174 professionals working in the state. The Ohio Venture Association recently recognized Cardinal as the 2016 “Venture of the Year.”Mark Nelsen, senior vice president of Risk and Authentication Products for Visa, will serve on the Fintech71 board.

Pulisic Scores Hat-trick as Chelsea Beat Burnley

first_imgBurnley were in the game until that stage but Chelsea ran away with it in the second half.Pulisic headed in from Mason Mount’s cross for his first career treble, before Willian blasted home a fourth moments later.Jay Rodriguez’s long-range strike and Dwight McNeil’s deflected effort brought huge roars from the Turf Moor faithful but they had left their comeback far too late.Pulisic, who has already been dubbed Captain America in some parts, has had a slow start to life in England as he adjusted from the switch from Borussia Dortmund.This was his first Premier League start since August, but there can be little doubt he is ready now.It was not just his goals which were impressive. He caused so many problems for Burnley with surging runs down both flanks and through the centre, as well as some testing crosses. But what will clearly be remembered are his three goals.His first was all his own work as he won it from Matthew Lowton before skipping past James Tarkowski and slotting home.Then Willian stole the ball off a Burnley defender before finding Pulisic, who did the rest – albeit with the help of a deflection.After the break, he popped up with an unlikely header to become only the second American to score a hat-trick in the Premier League.Willian’s fierce drive into the bottom corner was merely a footnote on this game.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Christian Pulisic yesterday scored a hat-trick to announce his arrival in English football in sensational style as Chelsea beat Burnley for a seventh consecutive win in all competitions.The 21-year-old American winger scored a ‘perfect’ hat-trick with a left foot, right foot and headed effort.He was the difference in an even first half, first of all winning the ball on the halfway line before running all the way and slotting home. His second was also a break from midfield after Willian won possession.last_img read more

Germany players to get Sh42.4mn each for World Cup win

first_img0Shares0000Germany’s players pose for the team photograph ahead of their friendly match against England, at Wembley Stadium in London, on November 10, 2017BERLIN, Germany, Dec 13-The German Football Association (DFB) announced Wednesday that each member of their squad will receive a Sh42.4mn ($411,267) bonus should Germany defend their World Cup title next year in Russia.If the Germans win a fifth world title, Joachim Loew and his squad stand to get an increase in prize money from the Sh36.3mn they each got for winning the 2014 World Cup final in Brazil. Germany kick off their 2018 defence against Mexico on June 17 in Moscow having also drawn Sweden and South Korea in Group F.“For our players, it is a great motivation to become world champions back-to-back for the first time in the history of German football,” said DFB president Reinhard Grindel.“That would be a title for the eternity and certainly worth a special bonus.“But you can feel in this team, that the sporting challenge is the main focus and not the economic aspect.”Germany have a reputation for being a tournament team and there will be no prize money from their FA until they reach at least the quarter-finals, where each player would get Sh9.1mn.The cash rises to Sh15.2mn for the semi-finals, Sh18.2mn for third place and Sh24.2mn if they lose the final on July 15 at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.Team manager Oliver Bierhoff says the performance-based scheme “brings the necessary calm and clarity early on, allowing us to focus on the task before and during the competition.”0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
