What exactly is LDP and how does it work?

We foster symbiotic growth between banks, Mastercard and startups in the form of three workshops. At least two of these workshops take place in your home city, minimizing travel. The goal of these workshops is to bring partnership projects to life. The partnerships that make the most progress will be invited to continue the program for a fourth workshop, and the company that makes the greatest improvement overall will be declared the program winner.
