San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Techstars and Barclays have joined forces to launch a startup accelerator dedicated to FinTech. The 15 week program will be based in London, and with the resources of both a world leading bank and the #1 startup accelerator it will offer unprecedented access for 10 FinTech teams – from payments to security & authentication to wealth management and beyond.
We are coming to Oxford to meet both teams working on FinTech startups as well as students or graduates looking for an amazing summer internship (Associate & Hackstar positions open).

We will be hosting the event at Oxford University, and some tasty pizza, beer and soft drinks will be provided. We'll of course cover details of the accelerator programme and what it entails, and we welcome FinTech self demonstrations and pitches to check out the latest innovations. Let us know if you want to pitch or demo something you're working on. (email firstname.lastname@example.org)
You don't have to complete an application to attend. If you are working on something interesting in the financial services space, we would love to meet you!
If you have completed your application, then please attend and let us know who your company is. We'd be happy to speak with you and answer any questions.
If you are interested in internships from mid June - September, we have business & technical opportunties available to join us and serve as extra muscle for the startups in the programme.
Working across 10 startups pushing boundaries in financial innovations, as well as getting exposure to Barclays and Techstars, this will probably be one of the best summers of your life. Our Associates (business interns) & Hackstars (technical interns) go on to do amazing things with their lives, utilising the connections and experiences they have gained.
