The FinTech Innovation Lab is a highly competitive 12-week program that helps early to growth stage startups refine and test their value proposition with the support of the world’s leading financial service firms.

Selected companies receive:

  • Mentoring from leading firms and VCs, as well as the Lab’s Entrepreneurs Network and Industry Advisors.
  • Insights from senior leaders and user groups in the financial sector – covering product feedback and potential deployment of proofs-of-concept.
  • Weekly workshops and panel discussions on wide ranging topics from procurement and technology architecture to bank regulation and industry trends.
  • Workspace, if your company chooses

The program culminates in a Demo Day where companies showcase their technology to financial service executives, investors and journalists.

If selected, at least two members of the company must reside in Dublin during the duration of the program.

In addition to Dublin, Accenture operates FinTech Innovation Labs in the following regions:

  • Asia Pacific (Hong Kong)
  • London
  • New York

Accenture in partnership with Enterprise Ireland are looking for Ireland’s best early stage tech companies to join our FinTech Innovation Lab Accelerator programme.

We want to bring early stage Irish companies to the next level and, for those who are ready to scale and go global, link them with leading financial services and technology companies.

We provide an opportunity for learning – not just sales.

The FinTech Innovation Lab is about mentoring and collaboration, rather than purely sales. While new business may be one positive outcome for your business, it should not be your primary objective. To get the most from the experience, you should come with an open mind, willing to learn and collaborate with the world’s leading banks.

As well as start-ups and entrepreneurs, we welcome applications from established businesses in other industries looking to branch out and financial services professionals who want to commercialise their IP. If you’re not sure you are eligible, please email us and we’ll let you know.
