That’s right, we have been chosen for yet another accelerator programme after our successful one in Hong Kong by FinTech Innovation Lab Asia-Pacific which will continue to run till October 2018.
FinTech Hive is the first and largest financial technology accelerator in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. The 2018 edition will build on the success of its inaugural accelerator programme that launched last year in partnership with Accenture, a leading global professional services company.
The programme will continue to bridge the gap between innovative tech entrepreneurs and industry giants, while providing a platform that enables the development of cutting-edge innovation in Dubai.
In addition, FinTech Hive at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is collaborating with Accenture’s FinTech Innovation Labs globally to further cement the accelerator’s position among the most reputable financial hubs in the world. This will bring about countless opportunities for innovators in the region, by connecting them to the international FinTech ecosystem.
Having been selected as a finalist, BetterTradeOff will undergo a 12-week programme under the guidance and mentorship of the leading financial institutions and insurance companies from the Middle East to create innovative and forward-looking solutions that aim to address the evolving needs of the region’s financial services industry.
The second phase of the programme involves a whole segment dedicated to pitching to investors. We’re given the opportunity to demonstrate our concept to a host of investors, bankers, government officials and even members of the media. This is certainly a fantastic platform for raising our Series A to accelerate our expansion and achieve our global mission.
