For those pushing innovations in financial services, 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.
Launching our global Recruitment Tour to meet FinTech startups and explain the program, we are very excited to come to NYC and many thanks to NewFinance & NY FinTech Startups for helping us share the news. All are welcome.

We will be hosting the event at the Techstars NYC office, and some tasty pizza, beer and soft drinks will be provided. We will also host an Alumni Panel so you can hear about the experience of going through a Techstars program.
If you are interested in bringing your company to London to work with one of the leading brands in finance and banking and the #1 startup accelerator, then come and talk with us. You don't have to complete an application to attend.
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.
This is going to be an awesome event. Trust us. See you there!
