Fall is here and the season is already filling our calendars with a number of initiatives including the launch of Chromia Studios (our first dip in the gaming scene), organization of multiple Chromia hackathons in places like Istanbul and Stockholm, and participation in conferences as far and wide as San Francisco, Tel Aviv, and Dhaka in Bangladesh. But one of the most exciting initiatives of this quarter is the admission of ChromaWay into the Lighthouse program by Mastercard. By being admitted, ChromaWay is being recognised as one of the 15 most promising fintech companies from the Nordics and the Baltics!
The Lighthouse Program by Mastercard is an accelerator that brings together startups, established companies, investors and other key players in the world of fintech. The ultimate objective of this program is to enable innovative companies fulfil their vision by helping them obtain the necessary network and support. ChromaWay has been working in enterprise blockchain solutions and fintech for the past four years, making it one of the experienced companies in the space in the Nordics. We are thrilled to announce our participation in the program which we anticipate will generate further opportunities to our development in the areas of payments and the expanding blockchain financial services space known as “DeFi”.
Jay Jensen, Director of the Lighthouse Program, noted: “The quality of fintechs coming out of the Baltic and Nordic capitals is perhaps the highest in the continent, and we are thrilled to see more companies applying each year.”
Henrik Hjelte, CEO of ChromaWay, is enthusiastic about the possibilities that working with MasterCard saying that “Chromaway is excited to explore the focused partnership model Lighthouse is developing. Unlike other accelerators we’ve been admitted to, Lighthouse recognizes that we are a partnership ready company with a set strategy and competing time commitments. We look forward to working with Mastercard to produce tangible results.”
