Startupbootcamp initiates a FinTech Program In Mexico

FinTech StartUps

Startupbootcamp, the global accelerator network dedicated to scaling entrepreneurial innovation, has announced its expansion to the Latin American market through the launch of a dedicated fintech program in Mexico today.

Following the success of other Startupbootcamp Fintech programs in London, Amsterdam, New York, Singapore and Mumbai, Startupbootcamp FinTech aims to accelerate Latin American startups by providing them with funding and mechanisms to grow through mentoring, access to corporate partners and clients, and taking advantage of Mexico City as a launchpad. The application process is now open for Latin American startups to take part in the world’s most prestigious FinTech accelerator program.

The accelerator program

Startupbootcamp Fintech Mexico City is a joint venture between Startupbootcamp and Finnovista - the leading champion of fintech innovation in Latin America.

The program has the support and involvement of global and regional leaders in financial services including VISA, Fiinlab powered by Gentera, BanRegio, EY and the international law firm White & Case.

Designed to support 10 FinTech startups, the 3-month accelerator program will take the selected startups to the next level through an intensive program that will enrich their projects. The program will provide 15,000 USD in funding, direct access to key players in the regional financial services industry, specialized mentoring, free office space in Mexico City, and access to a global network of investors and VCs, among other benefits. The main objective is to help these startups implement a successful strategy and prepare to scale.

The program will be led by the Fintech experts Nektarios Liolios, co-founder of Startupbootcamp FinTech, Fermín Bueno and Andrés Fontao, both co-founders of Finnovista. Eduardo Morelos, who has a strong track record in startup acceleration, will serve as program director.

Between March and May 2017 a tour of events called ‘FastTrack Days’ will take place to educate promising FinTech startups firsthand about the program. These events will happen in Buenos Aires, Santiago, Bogotá, Medellín, Quito, Lima, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey, as well as Miami and Madrid. The program begins July 3, 2017 with the 10 selected teams.
