IBM Hyper Protect Accelerator


Announcing the Class of 2020: IBM Hyper Protect Accelerator powered by IBM LinuxONE

IBM is looking for early-stage fintech and health-tech founders from around the world who need access to the resources required to build world-class applications and technical solutions. Over the course of 12 weeks, IBM will select 15 early-stage fintech and health-tech startups with technical and business best practices. In November, IBM will host an in-person workshop to help the selected startups refine their ideas, and will conclude in a demo day where founders will present their solutions to IBM partners, customers, and the venture capital community.

Incentive for startups

Selected startups will have access to technical workshops from IBM, an experienced network of business and technical support, connections to 300 business mentors, business value design, curated curriculum specifically designed for startups, and up to $10,000 monthly in IBM Cloud technology credits that can be used within that month to access IBM Hyper Protect Services running on IBM LinuxONE. By the end of the program, the cohort will have had the opportunity to each receive up to $120,000 in credits.
