We are thrilled to introduce the ten tremendous companies that are joining Techstars for the 2nd annual Barclays Accelerator in New York! Today kicks off the start of a 13-week intense program, capped by a Demo Day in September.

To help guide the companies through the unique FinTech landscape, we’re fortunate to have many of our 2015 alumni on the ground, as well as 100+ incredible mentors from all facets of technology and financial services.
