Mastercard Expands Citi Collab to Advance City Possible Program

Mastercard and Citi are expanding their relationship to grow the City Possible network by putting their collective resources to work for the good of local residents and small businesses, according to a press release on Thursday (Oct. 7).

City Possible, Mastercard’s partnership and co-creation framework for cities, aims to foster collaboration and co-creation on a widespread scale.

“Cities need to think about how to adapt to a digital world in a way that leverages technology to bring more people into the digital economy,” said Miguel Gamino, executive vice president of enterprise partnerships and head of global cities and City Possible at Mastercard.

“Partners like Citi allow us to continue to expand the range of solutions we can provide to the City Possible network, which has already played an important role in helping to build more inclusive communities,” Gamino said.
