Fintech Accelerators selection

The term “to accelerate” means “to move or go faster; increase in speed” and also “to progress or develop faster”. Within the Fintech industry, today we often come across the term “Accelerator”  describing a company or organisation that is helping start-ups to turn their business idea into reality. In most cases the Accelerators offer a several week long program providing start-ups with mentors from the Fintech industry and and preparing them step-by-step to set up their company. After successful completion of the program, the chosen start-up might receive a financial aid but will also have to pass on a share of their profits to the Accelerator, depending on the program.
