Amex to Roll Out a Corporate Program for Startups

2104This fall, startups are to get more opportunities since American Express has recently announced the run of the American Express Corporate Program for Startups under the slogan "Your big ideas deserve big spending power”. The program will be available by invitation only to eligible companies selected by Amex based on creditworthiness and some other factors.

"Startups are an increasingly large part of the global economy, but traditional corporate card products weren't meeting their needs," Anna Marrs, American Express Global Commercial Services president, said. "From working with startups in the past, we realized that was an underserved opportunity.”

Why You Should Think Twice Before Canceling Your Credit Card
