About The Program

The FinTech Innovation Lab is a 12-week program taking place during the spring of every year. Through a competitive process, we select six companies to enter the program every year, who receive:

  • Mentoring from the participating financial firms, VCs and the Lab's Entrepreneurs Network and Industry Advisors
  • Senior access to relevant user groups at the financial firms for product feedback and potential deployment of proofs-of-concept
  • Manhattan workspace available at the company's option. The Lab will also take a small warrant coverage in each of the six companies

Each selected company will also participate in a Leadership Program, consisting of weekly events such as:

  • Meetings with senior business executives, investors, and experienced entrepreneurs
  • Workshops and panel discussions on issues relevant to financial technology companies, such as procurement, proofs-of-concept, technology architecture, bank regulation, and broader industry trends

At the conclusion of the program, each of the six companies will present at a Demo Day, where dozens of bank executives, investors, and press will be in attendance. For more information on the FinTech Innovation Lab's 2013 Demo Day, please read the coverage from Wall Street & Technology and Forbes.
