MassChallenge opens call for its 2024 fintech accelerator program
MassChallenge Fintech has opened applications for its sixth Fintech accelerator program. Since its inception in 2018, MassChallenge FinTech has been a steadfast support system for founders, offering a comprehensive curriculum paired with personalized 1:1 mentorship in essential areas such as fundraising, investor relations, and growth strategies.
With a history of facilitating meaningful connections between founders and challenge partners, the MassChallenge FinTech Program has led to startup success during and post program. BCube, a MassChallenge FinTech 2020 alum, recently partnered with MassMutual to collaborate on an end-to-end audit and policy management solution; and TelosTouch, also a MassChallenge FinTech 2020 alum, negotiated their first U.S. master service agreement contract and obtained a SOC2 Type 2 Certification while in the program.
Mohammed Dastigir, Head of Fintech and Healthtech Partnerships, Economic Development at MassMutual: "MassMutual continues to see tremendous value in the MassChallenge Fintech Program. Around 50% of our startup engagements have matured into a variety of pilots or other business opportunities such as investments. When we began this journey in 2018, we never expected such a tremendous series of startup engagements that are helping solve real-world industry challenges. The insights, exposure to new ideas and relationships formed is unparalleled. Ultimately this experience helps us innovate and enables our mission - to help people secure their future and protect the ones they love."
The MassChallenge Fintech program is open to founders from all corners of the globe. While much of the program will be delivered digitally, participants can also look forward to engaging in a series of exclusive in-person events at the MassChallenge Boston office, culminating in a spectacular end-of-program finale, where founders can celebrate and network with investors. Furthermore, founders will have the invaluable opportunity to collaborate with industry experts from MassChallenge Challenge Partners such as KPMG, Citizens, MassMutual, and enriching their entrepreneurial journey.
The program targets founders with innovative solutions in generative AI, Regtech, blockchain, asset management, DeFi, and more. Entrepreneurs can initiate the process of crafting their startup profiles in anticipation of the application deadline on October 24, 2023.
