Co-Create to Innovate: Announcing YES FinTech Accelerator Autumn Roadshows

YES BANK, India’s fifth-largest private sector bank, has been a pioneer of several key technology innovations since its inception in 2004. Staying true to its values and commitment to innovation in the financial services industry, YES BANK, along with Let’s Talk Payments (LTP) and PricewaterhouseCoopers India (PwC), is proud to announce the launch of the Autumn Cohort for the YES FINTECH Accelerator (YFA). YFA is a platform for YES BANK and FinTech startups to co-create innovative solutions for the bank's 2.5 million+ retail, and 10,000+ corporate clients. The initiative offers a wide base for startups to tap into through co-creation and joint go-to-market strategy. Startups are presented with an opportunity to get access to funding of USD 1 million – all without any upfront equity commitment.

As part of the outreach for the program, the LTP/MEDICI Team is delighted to be organizing roadshows in Mumbai and Bangalore, where we wish to connect with emerging startups and FinTech professionals to introduce the program. Startups participating in the program can interact with the YFA team as well as Alumnus of the 1st Cohort of the program to learn more about the initiative.
