Startupbootcamp FinTech, the leading accelerator focused on financial innovation, has announced the 10 international startups selected to join its Singapore program. The finalists, which include teams from across Asia-Pacific have been chosen by a panel of industry experts, including representatives from Startupbootcamp FinTech’s partners.

Top 10 FinTech startups reflect important trends in FinTech, including Insurance Technology, Data Analytics and SME Financial Solutions, which are all relevant areas for consumers and businesses in Southeast Asia. They will join the ever-expanding list of successful startups that have been through the Startupbootcamp programs globally.

2016 Startupbootcamp FinTech Singapore program

From 18 April, the successful startups will benefit from extensive mentorship from 400+ entrepreneurs, investors and corporate partners, helping to guide each company through the ‘Shape’, ‘Build’ and ‘Sell’ stages of development and scaling across Southeast Asia. A series of masterclasses are offered on topics ranging from lean to legal, and focused partner days on leadership and investments.

As well as access to mentorship, each team will receive SGD$25,000 and four months free office space at Singapore’s startup hub BASH at Block 79. Partnerships with MasterCard, CIMB, RHB, DBS, Intesa SanPaolo, Thomson Reuters, PwC, PixVine Capital, Jungle Ventures, Accreditation@IDA and Infocomm Investments will also provide the Startupbootcamp FinTech finalists with access to potential pilot customers, industry data, and capital. Startupbootcamp FinTech is also supported by MAS who will provide feedback to the startups on regulatory matters.

Steven Tong, Managing Director at Startupbootcamp FinTech commented: “We reviewed over 350 applications from startups through online applications and 16 FastTracks around Asia. 20 impressive startups were selected from 8 countries to participate in our Selection Days. The high quality of the shortlisted startups made it a difficult process to select the final10 that will form the 2016 cohort of the programme. We are confident that 2016 cohort will do well in the Startupbootcamp Fintech accelerator.”

After three months of acceleration, the 10 teams will be invited to present their companies to 500+ investors, mentors and partners during Demo Day.

Following the Demo Day, startups will also have access to the Alumni Growth Program, a global network of 2,000+ mentors, 2,000+ investors, 125+ startups, and exposure to startup hubs in London, Singapore, and New York.

Neal Cross, Chief Innovation Officer, DBS said “As part of our SGD$10 million investment into the development of the Singapore FinTech start-up ecosystem, we are proud to be working with Startupbootcamp FinTech again to scout and accelerate 10 promising FinTech start-ups from around the region. The exchange between our employees and these start-ups is a strategic move towards engaging with emerging innovations and discovering potential areas for disruption.”
