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:
Biometric security software, FinovateSpring 2012 Best of Show winner
FinovateSpring 2012 demo
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.
