The FinTech Innovation Lab helped to guide FinGenius through the phenomenal complexity of the financial services industry and to get our Artificial Intelligence proposition in front of the decision makers in major banks. We met more than 600 people from 12 banks during the three-month programme, and began working with eight of these banks after the programme ended. It would have probably taken us two years to build a similar pipeline without FinTech’s assistance. Along with incredibly useful product and commercial advice from high-profile mentors, the programme gave us a fantastic competitive advantage and has exponentially accelerated the growth of our company.
To be honest - we were skeptical about the value of the Fintech Lab program to Erudine going in - but it proved to be the best possible help to us at the best possible time; by rightly forcing us to explain what we are selling over and over during an exhausting schedule of meetings with the spectrum of senior people in 12 global banks and mentors. It also allowed us to road-test propositions and get immediate and honest feedback. We have come away with hunting licences across many of the organisations and it has been a priceless launch-pad for us to grow Erudine.
We have seen huge growth since taking part in the Lab. It gave us access to the decision makers we were struggling to reach in the banks, and we evaluated our software with the very people we wanted to target. In doing so, we could deeply understand the problems we were trying to solve. Our collaboration partners became our eventual clients. Our sights are set on more. We will triple our revenues this year and aim to hire more staff by the end of the year. We are ready for rapid growth with more to come in 2017.
The FinTech Innovation Lab offered us a space to connect with leading banks, experts and other like-minded start-ups. We shared common goals and common ideas in a non-aggressive environment. It led to a contract with a Tier-1 bank. Not just that, but we built partnerships with other startups, so it was about sowing the seeds for long-term development. One of the reasons I invested in AimBrain was because of its inclusion in the Innovation Lab. It’s a route to a successful and high-quality network that can accelerate progress. I urge other fintechs to apply, because it grants access to a wealth of knowledge and contacts so vital for growth.

The FinTech Innovation Lab provided the single biggest turning point in our business.
It was fantastic in deciphering what is right and what is wrong about our business model.
The Lab provided exposure to some of the most senior execs in the largest global financial institutions in a very short period of time.
