The Kiwibank Fintech Accelerator is a three-month business growth programme powered by New Zealand’s premier startup accelerator brand, Lightning Lab. This programme is designed to help fintech companies compete on a global scale.

Ten teams will be accepted, gaining access to NZ’s largest network of financial services experts and a high-quality pool of startup mentors. Teams will work directly with Kiwibank, Xero and other financial industry partners. They’ll practice market validation and product development approaches used by companies like Google, IDEO, and Tesla. At the end of the three months, each team will have the opportunity to pitch for investment at Demo Day, in front of New Zealand's top angel investors and early stage venture funds.

Teams must have at least two founders who can relocate full-time to Wellington, New Zealand for the duration of the programme (Feb 7 - May 11, 2017) to qualify. Applications close at 11:59pm NZT on 2 December, 2016....
