From the article:

Opportunity may come knocking, but with innovation leading the way, opportunity is bound to keep finding the door again and again. It’s why FIS, the largest global fintech, has been inviting the boldest and brightest innovators through its doors with a program that’s been advancing the way the world pays, banks and invests year after year.

The FIS FinTech Accelerator program, in partnership with The Venture Center, identifies and fosters innovative startups with high-potential technologies. Each year, 10 companies are selected to participate in the world-renown, twelve-week program and are awarded a $75,000 investment from FIS upon completion.

Helping these promising companies accelerate their technologies from conception to commercialization is the goal, explains FIS Innovation Leader Chris Barry.

‘In the world of fintech, you’re only as good as your next product,’ he says. ‘At FIS, we’re always looking for tomorrow’s technologies – the ones that will deliver the next level of competitive advantage for our customers.’
