Twelve Fintech Startups with the potential to disrupt the finance industry pitched at the SIX ConventionPoint in front of the F10 FinTech ecosystem.
F10 FinTech Incubator and Accelerator – The Home of FinTech – celebrated last weeek its Demo Day with Batch IV. 9 out of 12 Startups graduated. The SIX ConventionPoint in Zurich was filled to capacity with FinTech enthusiasts to watch high-potential Startups from seven countries pitch their products and services for the last time during the P2 «Prototype to Product» program.
Demo Day marks the final milestone of the comprehensive six-month Startup Accelerator Program. The journey was an emotional rollercoaster for the F10 Startups. A lot of passion, dedication and sweat was invested on the way while contributing to the ongoing revolution in the finance industry. In six months, young companies often make enormous progress.
They learn to run a business from scratch including doing market research to solve actual problems of the finance sector, working out a unique selling proposition which distinguishes companies from competitors, finding the ideal team structure, draft business plans and develop investment strategies. The program contains hard milestones to maintain a high-quality standard. On the way, the innovative entrepreneurs were encouraged and supported by FinTech experts from leading institutions to develop their Prototype to a market-ready Product and innovate finance.
“We are proud of our promising Startups and how they excelled during the program with the support of and in close collaboration with their Startup Coaches. We are grateful for the time they have spent with us on their journey and curious to watch their individual success stories develop further,”
Thomas Landis, Head of F10.
“With the momentum of graduating such a strong class of FinTech Startups, we are excited to kick off the selection process for Batch 5 and see what new exciting business models are in store for the Swiss financial industry. The F10 coaches look forward to working closely with the new teams and I implore any Startup looking to work with the coaches, the corporates and to be a part of the F10 ecosystem to apply by June 2nd”,
F10 Startup Coach James Sanders says.
The Startup Acceleration Program is tailored for international teams with first Prototypes in FinTech, RegTech or InsurTech. F10 guides and supports the Startups on their journey to successful companies.
Applications for the next batch of the P2 “Prototype to Product” program are being accepted until 2nd of June 2019. Successful applicants will join the comprehensive six-month P2 «Prototype to Product» Program in Zürich between October and April 2020.
