Master Your Card was proud to present at the 25th annual Competitive Edge Conference in New York, which brought together the region’s minority and women-owned business enterprises, service-disabled veteran-owned businesses, and other small business owners from the area with decision-makers from the public and private sectors. Mastercard’s Ginger Siegel participated as a plenary speaker, where she was joined by six other corporate executives for a high-level conversation on how entrepreneurs can successfully elevate their business plan and bottom-line and build a secession plan. Mastercard’s Mercedes Garcia and Illya Shell participated as speakers as well, delivering a workshop about the importance of electronic payments when starting a business, which offered an in-depth look at the ways payments cards help small businesses grow.
