Barclays and Techstars have this week opened the application process for the third cohort of their prestigious Accelerator programme in London, which will give a further ten businesses the chance to shape the future of financial services.
The Barclays Accelerator, powered by Techstars, is a 13-week intensive startup programme designed to support new businesses on their journey to delivering breakthrough innovations.
It follows two programmes previously run in London – the most recent programme, which concluded in June, saw 7 out of the 10 companies sign agreements with Barclays. The programme is also currently running in New York.
Entrepreneurs and start-up companies worldwide can apply for the London programme now, with their applications focused on developing the future of FinTech. Applications will close on October 11, 2015, with the programme beginning at the end of January 2016.
The ten companies will be guided through the process of growing and developing their businesses with the help of funding of up to $100,000 from Techstars. They will have world-class mentorship from industry experts and will be based at the London Escalator, near London’s Tech City, giving them the optimum environment to thrive.
The programme will culminate in a Public Demo Day in London in April 2016.
