FinTech Innovation Lab London, a collaboration between Accenture and London-based FIs, recently selected companies to take part in its inaugural fintech mentoring course. Of the seven* fintech entrepreneurs selected, three are Finovate alums.
Industry executives selected the startups from a large pool of applicants. Finovate alums include:
The 12-week course is modelled after FinTech Innovation Lab in New York, which we covered late last year. The inaugural course in London will take place at Level39, where the startups will attend a series of panel discussions, workshops, leadership coaching and networking opportunities from mentoring financial institutions.
Some of the supporting institutions include:
- Credit Suisse
- Deutsche Bank
- Lloyds Banking Group
- UK national payments infrastructure provider
The other five fintech companies include Calltrunk, Digital Shadows, Growth Intelligence, and Waratek.
We’re pleased to announce that the demo videos from FinovateFall 2010 are now available for free download (or immediate consumption) from the Finovate archives.
This fall’s NYC conference showcased 56 handpicked companies doing 7-minute demonstrations (no slides allowed) of their latest technology innovations to a sold-out audience of 650 financial & banking executives, venture capitalists, press, analysts and entrepreneurs.
