Author: Allard Luchsinger, Managing Director Techstars + ABN AMRO Future of Finance Accelerator
Out of more than 450 applicants, a doubling of last year’s number, the Future of Finance team selected 10 of the most promising European early-stage fintech companies to join this year’s Amsterdam based accelerator program. Building on the success of the ‘21 and ‘22 edition, 24 fintech founders will spend 3 months turbo charging their businesses with the help of over 100 mentors, the local and global Techstars team, the ABN AMRO organization, global partners and alumni.
This year’s batch of fintech companies come from 7 different European countries, with their founders holding 11 nationalities. Their companies are going after some of the most pressing challenges of our age: SME/ startup financing, ESG data capture, sustainable Investing, anti-money laundering, funding climate projects, and rental market affordability. As for the earlier editions we set out to find unstoppable founders with a strong urge to leave a positive impact on this planet. And again we found them in our class of '23.
We're honored to present the ABN AMRO + Techstars Future of Finance Class of '23.
