Startupbootcamp FinTech is the leading accelerator focused on financial innovation, providing funding, mentorship, office space in the heart of London and access to a global network of investors and VCs, for up to 10 selected FinTech startups.
Over 3 months, the selected startups collaborate with 200+ mentors, partners, and investors to build world class FinTech products, with the ultimate goal of becoming industry leading companies.
In return we ask for 8% equity. All contracts are simple, transparent, and available for all to see.
Startupbootcamp Fintech has partnered with MasterCard, Lloyds Banking Group, Rabobank Group, Intesa Sanpaolo, arvato Bertelsmann, Route66, SBT Venture Capital, Clarity PR and MJ Hudson to provide the expertise, exposure channels, APIs and access to a network of industry professionals that most early-stage FinTech startups would not be able to access otherwise.
The program is led by Nektarios Liolios and Edwina Johnson, both using their extensive backgrounds to focus on startups developing technology for the financial industry.
All teams receive €15,000 in cash per team, €450,000+ in partner services, and 3+1 months of free office space in the Startupbootcamp FinTech hub in London, the Rainmaking Loft, to dedicate 100% of their time on the program.
The 3 month Startupbootcamp Fintech accelerator guides a company through the Shape, Build, and Sell stages of development, through hands-on sessions with 100+ mentors, masterclasses on topics ranging from lean to legals, and focused partner days such as media, investment and sales.
After 3 months of acceleration the 10 teams are invited to present their companies to 600+ investors, mentors, and partners during Demo Day. Pitch preparation includes hands-on guidance from investors, and leads into 3 months of fundraising support.
Startupbootcamp FinTech startups are actively supported long after their initial acceleration through the Alumni Growth Program, which includes a global network of 1,000+ mentors, 2,000+ investors, 125+ startups, and exposure to startup hubs like Singapore, New York and San Francisco.
