Know Before You Go
Come prepared to share. The Accelerator is most successful when the cohort and visitors have an open dialogue about the challenges community banks face as well as the opportunities possible through new technology.
Keep an open mind. Each company in the cohort seeks to solve a unique challenge. If a company’s solution is not best suited for your organization, provide information that could be helpful to them in their next steps.
Continue the conversation. Make connections with the Accelerator cohort participants and keep in touch beyond the program. Leverage these connections to explore new solutions for your organization and continue to share pertinent information that can inform their solutions and help change the way the world pays.
The 2022 FIS Fintech Accelerator is will begin booking visits in April 2022.
