Participants from Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa will access the Visa network and compete for a total prize fund of $35,000 for the CEMEA Regional Finals and $125,000 for the World Finals. The World Finals will be held at the Visa Network.
This year the program expanded to include cryptocurrency startups and Visa Direct payment solutions. The final will be held in Qatar in November 2022.
Past VEI competitions have allowed prospective innovators to accelerate their growth. For example, in 2019, the competition was held for the first time in Central Asia in partnership with IFCA. The final of the competition was held at the IFCA Tech Hub, where Kazakh startups reKASSA and Nebank.kz were among the winners of the competition.
