Finovate alumni Persint (Spring 2013) and StockSmart (Fall 2013) are starting off the week with a bang. Both companies have been selected to participate in Yodlee Interactive’s NEXT, a partner lifecycle program for fintech startups and entrepreneurs.
The goal of NEXT is to “promote and accelerate” innovation in the fintech space. The program consists of an initial incubation stage, during which the companies are given free access to Yodlee Interactive’s API for six months. Those companies that show “marked traction” will be invited to the second, acceleration stage and, after that, a final cultivation stage. The two latter stages give the startups opportunities to work with industry veterans and Yodlee partners.
