The application period for the VC Fintech Accelerator's inaugural cohort is well underway, and applications are pouring in from across the country and around the world. Applications will be accepted until midnight, central standard time (CST) on March 31, 2016.
The Accelerator is drawing national attention as the only global accelerator that guarantees access to the executive suite of FIS--the global FinTech leader and its global business network that encompasses customers ranging from retail businesses to traditional financial institutions.
LTP sat down with Tariq Bokhari recently for an interview on FIS' involvement in the VC FinTech Accelerator and what the banking software giant hopes to accomplish and the metrics of success for the program.
In excerpts from an interview for LTP, Mr. Bokhari highlights the distinct advantage that startup founders can leverage with The Venture Center-led program.
Mr. Bokhari went on to state that FIS has always monitored and invested in FinTech innovation. "What makes this partnership with the Venture Center different is that this is public and we’re partnering to establish a world-class accelerator that helps us push FinTech forward."
