The FIS Fintech Accelerator in partnership with the Venture Center brings bankers, subject matter experts, and financial service executives together with pre-vetted, market-validated fintech companies to advance the financial services industry. We are so excited to introduce you to an ongoing series of meetings with the incredible alumni of our accelerator, and the impact they’re making today in the fintech industry.
Describe the growth or change your company experienced over the course of the program and the role of the Accelerator in assisting with that growth/change-what was your starting/ending point, did you create new products, modify your roadmap, execute new bank deals, etc.
The opportunity to get in front of banks and credit unions to pitch your products and hear exactly what resonates (and what doesn’t) is unmatched.
How has the FIS/FIV teams helped you navigate opportunities within FIS and how have they been instrumental in making that happen?
We were able to get 40+ meetings with decision-makers at banks and credit unions, accelerating our feedback loop by months.
What advice would you give to companies interested in applying for the program?
My recommendation for other companies interested in the program is to be present (physically and mentally) and use the program to hone your product, learning not just from the banks but also through the other cohort companies in the program. Some of our biggest breakthroughs came through conversations with other cohort companies.
