Huge Thing Accelerator Seeks FinTech Startups

Blockchain, FinTech | April 14, 2017 By:

SpeedUp Venture Capital Group is inviting startups engaged in the field of FinTech to join the fourth edition of its Huge Thing accelerator program in Warsaw, Poland.

The upcoming program is being funded by the Alior Bank and the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development. Some 20 startups from the FinTech sector will be able to participate in the 4-month program and acquire funding of up to 45,000 Euro for further development of their ideas.

To apply for the acceleration, startups need to have an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) – a minimum, simple version of their product, ready for testing with first clients. Other considerations: the make-up of the project team, enthusiasm to further develop the project, and a desire to work and learn from the mentors involved in the program. The project field of service is also important.

The recruitment process remains open until Tuesday, April 17. The website states that applications will be reviewed and assessed by representatives from Alior Bank, Huge Thing and SpeedUp Venture Capital Group. Selected projects will be invited for an online interview. The best startups will be then invited to participate in the pre-accelerator as the last stage of the recruitment process.
