Congratulations to W2 Global Data Solutions who have been selected to join the Emerging Payments Association’s new startup incubator, The Catalyst!

W2 Global Data Solutions offers a range of SaaS screening tools and services to help organisations find out more about the people they’re working with. W2 founder and CEO, Warren Russell said:

“To be selected as a Rising Star is a fantastic accolade and demonstrates our commitment to the payments industry. The EPA Catalyst is going to be an important tool for all emerging payment technologies across all borders and for W2 to have access to other members, workspace and mentoring that is on offer to us is extremely valuable to a growing business such as ours.”

The Catalyst, which was launched on 18th June 2015 in association with MasterCard and The Bancorp is the world’s first catalyst for early stage payment companies. As a part of The Catalyst, W2 Global Data Solutions, and five other beneficiaries or ‘Rising Stars’ as EPA is calling them, will receive mentoring and guidance, access to workspace facilities and introductions to potential partners and targeted investors.

Tony Craddock, Director General, Emerging Payments Association said:

“The goal of the Emerging Payments Association is to turbo-charge our Rising Stars, each of whom have been selected for their progressive management team and innovative approach to payments… W2 were selected as Rising Stars because of the successful track record of the management, the distinctness of the proposition and the relevance of their solution to unmet needs in the payments industry for cost-effective authentication and identification.”
