Maria will be here to present on NYCIF's latest venture - The FinTech Innovation Lab. This is an annual program run by the New York City Investment Fund and Accenture for entrepreneurs and early stage companies that are developing cutting edge technology products targeted at financial services customers. Through a competitive process, the chief technology officers of the world's leading financial service firms will determine which proposals are accepted for further development and deployment. Winners will get the chance to refine and beta test their financial technology products in New York City in partnership with these firms.
The FinTech Innovation Lab will also provide the companies with funding to defray expenses and workspace in New York City. In addition, winners will have the opportunity to meet other leading fintech entrepreneurs in the NYC community and have access to other resources, such as exchanges, clearing & settlement agencies, data providers, regulatory bodies, etc.
At the end of the twelve-week program, winners will have the opportunity to present their companies to the chief technology officers and senior technology executives of the participating firms and potential investors.
