Launched in 2010, the FinTech Innovation Lab is a highly competitive, 12-week program that helps early- to growth-stage enterprise technology companies refine and test their value proposition with the support of the world’s leading financial service firms.

We also operate an InsurTech track, alongside our established FinTech track, to bring emerging solutions to an expanded list of insurance partners and provide insurtech entrepreneurs with the guidance that will take their technologies from nice-to-have to mainstays within the industry.
