With our first launch bringing more people than spaces to stand, please join us for version 2.0 to celebrate the launch of the Barclays FinTech Accelerator, powered by Techstars.
Barclays and Techstars have joined forces to launch a startup accelerator dedicated to FinTech. The 15 week programme 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.
Our second event will invite applicants, prospective applicants, Techstars alumni, and FinTech fanatics interested in the programme to come together under one roof. We will be there to answer your questions and tell you more about the programme. We will also host an alumni speaker so you can hear about the experience of going through Techstars.

The office is not 100% opened yet, we will confess, but we just couldn't wait.
We will be hosting the event at our BRAND NEW 11,000 sq ft office on Mile End Road. To appropriately mark the occasion, we will have green themed food and drinks in honour of St Patrick's Day.
If you are interested in working 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. If you are building a startup around anything that touches the finance space, from payments to security & authentication to banking and wealth management, we want to talk to you!
