Start Path is another accelerator that debuts recently in Europe with a particular focus on commerce and fintech. Launched in January this year by MasterCard, Start Path has graduated 6 startups already, now preparing for the next program that will be launched in 2015. Steve Flinter, the vice president for engagement and acceleration in Europe at MasterCard Start Path, joined me for a video interview (below) at the accelerator’s booth in Web Summit 2014 and shared the details of Dublin-based program which seems rare in its backing of mostly seed (pre and post) stage startups and providing access to a rich and highly relevant business networks of the MasterCard.
