INV was formed through a partnership between Bank Innovation, one of the world’s leading fintech strategy news services, and Fiserv, a leading provider of financial services technology — and includes the participation of U.S. Bank, the fifth-largest bank in the United States.

Startups admitted into the accelerator will receive a multitude of services, including:
● Consultation with Fiserv technology mentors
● Direct feedback from financial institutions

● Beta-testing and/or proof-of-concept opportunities
● Goal-setting and project management assistance
● Access to legal professionals
● Access to valuable APIs and banking services

● Digitization/disruption of financial services
