Recommendations

Alain Glanzman CEO at WalletFi

If you want to build a successful FinTech startup, it only makes sense to align yourself with the Venture Center and the largest FinTech company in the world (FIS). The VC FinTech Accelerator run by the Venture Center is the real deal and on par with the other big name accelerators. The Venture Center team will constantly push you outside of your comfort zone and get you well prepared for the road that lies ahead after Demo Day. I can't say enough good things about this program and the people running it.

Grant Taylor CEO at Quotanda

The VC FinTech Accelerator was an intense and awesome program. This is the top accelerator for any bank-enabling FinTech entrepreneur and company. Meet and pitch tens of innovative bankers / banks and get unparalleled access to FIS, the largest core banking software provider.

Sesie Bonsi Co-Founder at BarBlackBook

Without the VC FinTech Accelerator Bleu would not be where we are today. Our entire growth strategy changed as a result of working with the tremendous resources and guidance the accelerator provided. It was integral to our development from a startup to actually generating revenue.

Chris Rentner CEO at Akouba

Akouba was part of the first class with the FIS VC FinTech Accelerator Program. During the program we met with many FIS executives and were introduced to dozens of bank prospects. In the 6 months following the program, those conversations have turned into relationships and customer opportunities and I would attribute that directly to the program that we were part of.

Greg Ellis CEO at Mortgage Peer Network

Our company participated in VC FinTech I and it was great. This was my first experience with an accelerator so I was somewhat apprehensive. However, the experience proved to be better than I ever expected. Not only were we introduced to many key bank contacts, but we were thoroughly prepared for launching our company and raising investment. I came away from the experience with a revenue generating business a lot of new friends. I highly recommend it!
