FinTech continues to dominate the startup scene. Banks are beginning to take the disruption that startups are causing more seriously than ever before and continue to look for opportunities to collaborate with startups. For startups, this means that you can work with large corporations, particularly in finance, earlier than ever before.

There comes a day for every startup when founders wonder if they should join an accelerator program. If that day hasn’t arrived for you yet then today might be it because Startupbootcamp FinTech accelerator in London is closing applications in just 3 days!
Don’t just take our word for it, we have asked mentors, investors and FinTech startups who have participated in the Startupbootcamp FinTech program previously to explain the value that FinTech programme has to offer:
