F10, a startup accelerator located Switzerland, today announced the launch of its current round of applications for its P2 program. The latest round of applications commences today and is open to all startups in FinTech, RegTech, and InsurTech.
Potential candidates for 2018’s first round of P2 have until December 15th to prepare and submit their application. The P2 program itself will start on March 5th, 2018 and run until August 23rd.
“2017 has been an exciting year in the world of FinTech – looking at the creative tech solutions that we are seeing from our startups, the future is looking even brighter,” said Markus Graf of F10. “As the best accelerator in Switzerland, we’re excited to be at the front of these new developments, fostering the ideas and leveraging the skills that these startups have by helping them collaborate with industry leaders and build a network of connections. Moreover, our guidance and expert help is proving invaluable in guiding them to maturity in a fast-changing industry.”
The F10 P2 program has close ties with the nation’s financial institutions and has SIX Group sponsorship. Incubated start-ups enjoy close collaboration with global leaders including the Baloise Group, Generali, and PwC Switzerland, accelerating their business development as much as aiding the development of their financial products and services for market readiness.
“This is a great acceleration program!” said Sylvain Bertolus, CEO of CashSentinel, a vehicle buying and selling payment service startup engaged in the summer 2017 P2 batch. “P2 is the perfect balance between informal – and yet serious. I can’t recommend F10 enough, especially at a time when there are too many accelerators and incubators around.”
