The Lab is supported by key players in the finance industry such as Allied Irish Bank, Bank of Ireland, Citi, Fexco, State Street, Realex Payments, Ulster Bank and Credit Suisse, as well as tech giant Google.

Irish start-ups, in the early stage of developing leading-edge technologies for the financial services sector are invited to apply online for a place. The 12-week mentoring programme will commence in January 2016.

The programme will accelerate product development and give six start-ups exposure to C-level financial industry executives.

At the end of the programme there will be two ‘investor days’, one in Dublin and one in London, where the entrepreneurs will get the chance to pitch to an audience of venture capitalists and financial industry executives.

“This programme aims to bring early-stage Irish fintech companies to the next level and, for those that are ready to scale and go global, connect them with leading financial services and technology companies internationally,” said Sinead Barry, programme lead for Accenture Fintech Innovation Lab Dublin.

Globally, the Accenture labs’ alumni companies have raised more than US$240m in financing after participating in the programme.

Applications for the second Fintech Innovation Lab Dublin are open from now until 30 October.
