Startups graduating from 2017 cohort announce partnerships following successful roadshow in Singapore, Chengdu, Hong Kong and Tokyo
Startupbootcamp FinTech Singapore, the leading global accelerator focused on innovation in financial services, announces its 2017 cohort of startups have secured more than 70 pilots, clients and key partnerships, with hundreds more in the pipeline.
The announcement comes off the back of the Startupbootcamp FinTech Demo Tour, that took place over the last two weeks. Hosting four events across Asia in Singapore, Chengdu, Hong Kong and Tokyo, attendees heard pitches from the top 11 FinTech teams selected out of more than 500 applications across Asia-Pacific earlier this year.
Notable partnerships include:
Numerous future partnerships are in talks between Startupbootcamp FinTech Singapore’s corporate partners and the 2017 cohort.
Samuel Hall, Program Director, Startupbootcamp FinTech Singapore said: “Our 2017 cohort is a great representation of FinTech across Asia. Whilst they come from countries as diverse as India, Cambodia and South Korea, all the companies are linked not just by their desire to grow across the region, but by their readiness to do so. The tour was an adventure for all of us, but its objective and necessity is clear: the startups’ products and platforms are built; their value is apparent; what these companies need to do now is sell, collaborate and fundraise. The 4-stop Demo Tour gave them the best chance to maximise their businesses.”
Other achievements include:
The ‘Odyssey’ themed tour was the first of its kind in Asia. It highlighted the startups specifically for vetted and highly relevant investors and financial institutions, while also enabling collaboration and fundraising opportunities. Startupbootcamp, having run hundreds of demo days across the world, realised Asia was the optimal location to run their first demo tour, selecting key locations and key decision makers across pinnacle locations within Asia.
The 11 teams that showcased throughout the Demo Tour were:
