Applications are now open for the fifth Barclays Accelerator powered by Techstars in New York.
Over the last 6 years, Techstars and Barclays have become two of the most active FinTech investors in the World.
So what’s behind the success? Because let’s be honest… FinTech is really (really) hard.
The program creates an unfair advantage by marrying the banking expertise and unparalleled distribution of Barclays with Techstars’ proven track record of accelerating technology companies.
Now, this program is not for the faint hearted. You have to be tenacious, resilient and – most importantly – you have to be pushing the known boundaries in capital markets, consumer banking, insurtech, risk management, payments/credit, lending, regtech, credit solutions, blockchain, and more.
Starting in March, we’ll be hosting a series of webinars, office hours, and AMA sessions. These will help you to get to know the community and provide information on Techstars’ approach to entrepreneurship.
Do you have questions about the program and what we look for?
Register for an upcoming interactive webinar & AMA session to learn more:
March 5th, 11:00am EST
April 11th, 12:00pm EST
