BBVA’s ecosystem of innovation and fintech talent was key to the success of Lucas. This startup, which facilitates access to the purchase of a home, was able to find its main partners, develop a platform and launch its product on the market thanks to its access to BBVA Open Space’s network of contacts and advice. Now the startup is preparing for its first round of seed funding.

BBVA has partnered with the authentication solutions company Nok Nok Labs — one of the driving forces behind the new FIDO (Fast Identity Online) standard aimed at strengthening the security of biometric systems on mobile devices. The agreement is part of BBVA's strategy to improve the security and user experience of its mobile banking services through state-of-the-art biometric capabilities.
