Lighthouse class of 2019

Introducing 15 fintech’s for Lighthouse 2019

Last year we had the opportunity to work with 15 great fintech companies in Stockholm, Helsinki, and Vilnius. The founders and their teams reminded us so much of the core purpose for creating the Lighthouse program. They are the innovators, the creators, and the doers, that have been able to build products and solutions set to change finance as we know it.

The companies that we work with are the spirit and driving force that will transform our industry. Lighthouse is the platform that helps them bring their visions to fruition and to the global markets. Enfuce, the 2018 Lighthouse winner, is in the final stages of launching a sustainability platform with Mastercard and their banking partners that will change the way we view our purchases. Fidesmo has now integrated and gone live through Mastercard’s digital enablement service (MDES) to help them empower their services on all wearable devices. Swiftcourt has partnered with OP bank to help them handle payments on P2P platforms, and NFT Ventures invested €1M to help them scale their solution.


Today we announce 15 companies that will join the spring 2019 Lighthouse edition in Copenhagen, Oslo, and Tallinn. Each company has been chosen because they have proven that they are building solutions that are innovative, scalable, and most importantly, impactful. Together with Mastercard, our banking partners, NFT ventures, and legal, tech, and strategy experts we hope to co-create and build truly collaborative results that will enrich the financial industry.


Without further ado meet the Lighthouse Spring Class of 2019.






















We have seen great projects initiated across Mastercard, banks and between startups from the 2018 class. These 15 new companies have already proven that they have strong products and concepts to fit customer demand, and we are glad to guide them on their exciting journey in the coming months.” 

— Mats Taraldsson, Head of Digital Development and Fintech Engagements Mastercard Nordic and Baltic
