Barclays Accelerator and Techstars
Opportunity for USA, Canada, and international technology startups that are working to transform financial services to participate in a 13-week funding and mentorship accelerator program in Tel Aviv, Israel. The funding source is looking for technology-focused start-ups with a passion for innovation, lots of creativity, and who share Barclays Accelerator's revolutionary vision. Barclays Accelerator is open to businesses across all aspects of financial services.
The Barclays Accelerator is looking for great founders with ideas that solve real problems or create meaningful innovations. For Barclays, it’s about the team and because of this, Barclays is less likely to accept single founder companies. The best things you can do to strengthen your application are:
Your team must be capable of designing your solution and be ready to launch by the end of the 13-week program. Barclays is looking for impressive teams with an ability to execute.
Barclays will provide tools, equipment, and facilities – plus support for start-ups to get their products or services to market.
In conjunction with Techstars, Barclays will also provide mentorship from carefully selected business leaders and entrepreneurs to help you develop your business model. These mentors will be able to give you unparalleled advice with networking, marketing, PR, pitching and more - helping you accelerate your company's development.
Techstars and Barclays will each take a small equity stake in the common stock of each company, with Techstars taking 4% and Barclays 2%.
