I am excited to announce that we have opened applications for the second Barclays Techstars Accelerator class in NYC!

Start your application right here for our Summer 2016 class.

Fintech is arguably one of the hottest areas in tech right now and we’re excited to be in the thick of it, at our accelerator space Rise NYC. Many disagree on exactly what technologies or business models fit in the category of fintech. To us, if a business can disrupt or innovate a financial services company in any way, we are interested.

From payments to lending, security to blockchain, capital markets to data and analytics, the opportunity to partner with a top tier bank like Barclays is incredibly impactful.

Don’t take our word for it, hear from a few of our founders themselves at our recent demo day: Liveoak, Chainalysis, Rangeforce and Seeds.
