F10 FinTech Incubator & Accelerator opens applications for its acceleration program
F10 – Switzerland’s premier FinTech incubator and accelerator, an association including SIX, Julius Bär Bank and PwC Switzerland – are pleased to announce that startups from the FinTech, InsurTech and RegTech branches can now apply for F10’s next startup accelerator program.
The P2 Program, which will take place from July 3 to December 7, 2017, is aimed at providing 10 startups from around the world the opportunity to evolve an initial prototype from the planning phase to the market release phase. The program will be made up of various coaching and educational modules, and will take place at the F10 offices in Zurich as well as online.
To ensure that the startups have the best chances of successfully bringing their products to market, the F10 and its external experts and mentors will be on site and available to coach and mentor the qualifying teams.
Startups will have until April 28, 2017 to submit their ideas to F10. This will be followed by a pre-selection phase in early June 2017 and a final selection later that same month.
This Summer 2017 batch will mark F10’s third such batch since the F10 Association started incubating and accelerating FinTech Startups. The F10 Association was founded as a non-profit association by SIX together with Julius Bär Bank and PwC Switzerland.
Application Period: December 1–April Selection Period: April 29– June 6 Program: July 3–December 7
Participation for the selected startups is free and F10 does not take equity in the startups. More information can be found on www.f10.ch. The Association is open for other strategic partners.
