SUPPORTING ENTREPRENEURS

Wanted: disruptive and innovative

Socure, Kantox, Simple, Madiva, Spring Studio… these are names that may sound familiar to you as they too were startups until just recently. Today, they are BBVA partners working with us to transform the industry. Our goal is to establish lasting relationships with industry disruptors like these. BBVA Open Talent helps us do this.

For instance, Socure, the BBVA Open Talent 2014 winner in the category of New Banking for North America & Rest of the World region, is currently working with BBVA Compass and Simple to help us transform the financial ecosystem.
