Walking the talk of innovation

Innovation is at the heart of Mastercard’s nearly 50-year history. We take an innovative, value-driven approach to the solutions we create and services we offer, making transactions faster, easier, and more convenient and secure.  

One of the many ways in which we innovate is through our culture and people. We hire talented, inventive employees such as those in our Labs group. We also encourage all employees to participate in efforts that cultivate innovation in local communities such as STEM programs. In addition, we showcase innovation through products such as Qkr!, MasterpassTM and tokenization that powers solutions like Apple PayTM to deliver value to consumers, merchants and banks alike. And, through outreach to developers and entrepreneurs, we are helping to facilitate improvements across the payments ecosystem that will generate future innovations.

By underpinning innovation in everything we do, we are transforming the way people pay and get paid, helping businesses grow, improving the shopping experience and advancing financial inclusion around the world.
