F10 Fintech Accelerator Program 2019/20

F10 is a Zurich based FinTech Incubator and Accelerator which supports and guides Startups in transforming their ideas into successful companies while stimulating worldwide collaboration with international finance organizations.

The accelerator already has a proven track record of innovation, acceleration, and product creation for financial services. Working with SIX, the Swiss stock exchange and other leading financial institutions, F10 is at the forefront of the new financial paradigm, bridging the gap between exciting new ideas and tomorrow’s leading products.

Prototype to product

The program offers lessons and workshops grouped into five units:

  1. Vision, Team, Strategy
  2. Business, Product & Technology
  3. Marketing & Sales
  4. Legal & Regulations
  5. Demo Day & Graduation

At the end of each training session, teams will identify the milestones they must reach prior to the next session. Coaches and mentors will have regular contact with the teams to ensure that they are on track and to provide assistance as required.

For these lessons and workshops, at least one member of the founding team is required to be present on location in Zurich. SIX assists in defraying travel expenses with a 15,000 CHF reimbursement for each team funded in badges. Funding will only be given if the team reach the identified milestones properly.

Program Criteria

The program is intended for international teams or Startups with a prototype in FinTech, RegTech, or InsurTech.

The definition of a prototype can be very broad; most important is that a real problem has been identified and validated and that the needs of potential customers are addressed.

Teams and Startups do not need to be incorporated or complete to participate in the program.
