There's another fintech accelerator coming to New York.
Startupbootcamp FinTech, co-hosted by MasterCard, Banco Santander, Rabobank and Thomson Reuters, will open in March and applications will be accepted through February. The program is part of the Startupbootcamp worldwide network of 12 startup accelerators that launched in 2010. Earlier programs were held in London and Singapore.
The partnering companies will help mentor participating fintech startups as they gear up to pitch their business ideas to investors at the end of the three-month intensive program. Ten graduates of the accelerator will receive a $20,000 grant, office space for three months and access to a network of investors and venture capitalists.
The Startupbootcamp launch is a "logical" step to diversify and improve the network of startup companies already discovered through the program, said Jesse Podell, managing director.
