Mastercard Labs

By Mastercard Asia PacificMastercard Asia Pacific


Contact Person:
Tobias Puehse
Contact Number: +65 6533 2888
Contact EmailEmail hidden; Javascript is required.

Background

For over 50 years the pre-dominant form factor in card payments has been a simple piece of plastic. During that time Mastercard has been at the fore-front of innovation through the incorporation of features such as mag-stripe, chip, contactless - all with a vision to make the payment safe, simple and smart. However, the potential to engage with consumers and offer services around the payment through the plastic card has been inherently limited in nature.
In a world where smart, connected, personal devices are increasingly pervasive – the opportunity now exists to enrich consumer experience, add value before, during and after the payment and enable non-traditional commercial environments in a way that was never possible before.
The Mastercard Labs R&D team is comprised of very high-end technologists and engineers who work collaboratively with internal and external subject matter experts to dream up and execute next generation innovations in commerce. These teams bring fresh ideas, unhampered by prior knowledge of constraints: our engineers are more likely to say “we’ll find a way” than "this have never been done".
The focus of the R&D team is on execution: bringing innovation to life and iterating on solutions that have the potential to fundamentally change how commerce works. Everyone is passionate about technology, driven by a healthy disregard for the status quo, and is ultimately motivated to leverage technology to deliver commercial value.

Focus Area

Through regularly engaging the wider business in idea generation processes and innovation competitions, Mastercard Labs plays a key role in furthering the innovative culture within Mastercard and our partners.

Diversity is critical to innovation success. Mastercard Labs runs projects across multiple geographies and comprises a diverse team of passionate individuals from a variety of cultures, backgrounds and disciplines. We operate as a single team collaborating on a global scale to identify and drive disruptive, breakthrough innovations in payments.

Over the last few years, Mastercard Labs has created hundreds of prototypes, in a variety of areas – commerce-related digital convergence, payment acceptance, loyalty and rewards, digital currencies, digital receipts, authentication, electronic bill presentment and payment, P2P payments, MPOS, disbursements, social commerce and many, many more - all focused on how Mastercard is executing on our strategy to drive preference for electronic payments and the MasterCard brand, with solutions that meet the needs of consumers, merchants, issuers, acquirers, businesses, and governments.

Mastercard Labs has evolved, and will continue to do so. Recent evolutions, beyond pure R&D, include commercialization and market validation that achieved global scale, engaging with and supporting the startup community, and making our innovation processes and best practices available to our customers. But we’re just getting started…

Coolest thing about your lab

Cool does not cut it. The Mastercard Lab is all about execution to make sure that innovation goes beyond ideation. The vast majority of futuristic experiences in our Mastercard Lab are currently in pilot with our customers.
