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. For Cardinal and by extension Visa, the Ohio-region continues to be a hub for collaboration and a hotbed for strong talent. The financial services category is already the second-largest private sector in Ohio and there are 200 universities graduating 170,000 students every year, making the state a great place for talent to live and work.
