I’m excited to introduce Greg Rogers as Managing Director of the Barclays Accelerator, powered by Techstars. Greg was a mentor in residence in our London program in 2013 and brings over ten years of experience in the digital media and technology space as a successful entrepreneur, senior manager and angel investor. Prior to joining us, Greg was Senior VP of Premium Advertising at AOL, a hat he wore while also running Pictela, a content management system that he co-founded in 2008 and AOL purchased in 2010. Pictela was awarded Digiday’s Best Publishing Innovation for 2011.
Greg will be joined by the talented Jess Williamson, one of our program managers who recently ran the London program with Jon Bradford and also managed over two successful years of Springboard programs prior to Springboard and Techstars joining forces early last year.
FinTech founders interested in 15 weeks of mentorship and £12,500 in investment should apply before the final deadline of March 31, 2014. Examples of the types of teams we’re looking for include payment solutions and applications, digital banking solutions, currency transfer products, and securities trading platforms.
