Following last week’s launch of the ICBA ThinkTech Accelerator, ICBA is encouraging community bankers to refer potential candidates for the program using the ThinkTech webpage. The deadline for startup applications is Nov. 18, but ICBA members can refer candidates to the program for consideration through Nov. 30.
Powered by The Venture Center, this first-of-its-kind accelerator will help community banks directly engage fintech companies focusing exclusively on community bank product development and solutions.
Under the program, a selection committee made up of ICBA staff and member bank executives will mentor early-stage companies vying to be selected for the accelerator. They will select eight to 10 candidates to receive ICBA investments, with finalists presenting their solutions at the ThinkTech showcase at ICBA LIVE® 2019.
