Earlier this week, a new fintech accelerator emerged out of the Silicon Prairie. St. Louis-based SixThirty announced its inaugural class of four fintech startups, selected from a pool of 100 applicants, that will take part in the 16-week incubator program that starts next Monday.
This fall, SixThirty will invest a total of $400k in four participating startups:
Hedgeable, Matthew Kane and Michael Kane
XYverify enables consumers, merchants and financial institutions to reduce costs and prevent fraud via a mobile authentication platform.
Along with each receiving $100k, the companies will have access to mentorship and connections to top financial services firms. Four more companies will be selected for the Spring program. The application window for that program will open in mid-December.
