Inspiring the next generation of technology leaders

TechBright Initiative

At Worldpay, we’re working to inspire the next generation of bright minds to pursue a career in STEM fields, particularly information technology.

Designed to kindle passion and develop the talent of collegiate students, Worldpay’s TechBright program endeavors to increase the number of students - especially women - who are pursuing degrees related to the fast growing technology sector.

It’s a public-private partnership with universities and colleges that reflects an investment in our collective future.

Ways we engage and invest in students:

  • Financially assisting colleges and universities launch and support programs designed to recruit women and students with diverse, non-technical backgrounds to pursue technology related degrees.

  • Leveraging the Financial Technology (FinTech) expertise of Worldpay employees to inspire students, including FinTech Bootcamps and technology roundtables on campus.

  • Sponsoring or participating in collegiate hackathons, case studies, or senior projects.
  • Connecting students interested in technology and FinTech to each other on campus and across the country through our developer resource platform: https://developer.vantiv.com/

  • Technology mentorships with Worldpay IT leaders and participation by students in Worldpay’s internship programs.
