Welcome to a new kind of accelerator!

We know that founders and corporate innovators face similar issues regarding regulations, fragmented data and the lack of advanced technology in the digital finance sector. It’s time for solutions.

For the first time, we are creating a new kind of FinTech accelerator that is not only for startups but for corporates, too. Our new approach is to bring both sides of the ecosystem together for multiple days on a platform established to forge pivotal connections, exchange knowledge and actively shape the future of finance with other top players in Frankfurt.
