Zürich – As the dust of the afterparty settles for the 12 of 13 graduates of F10’s P2 Program Demo Batch II Day, the Swiss FinTech Incubator and Accelerator announced that the second Demo Batch Day had been its biggest yet, with over 400 attending.
The Demo Day took place in Limmat Hall, Zürich during the afternoon and evening Thursday, December 7th, continuing into the night with an afterparty. The Demo Day marks the end of months of hard work for the Startups, who collaborated with experts from leading institutions to build a full, market-ready product from their prototype.
“It has been a tough few months for our Startups, and we are very proud of how far they have come with our guidance. This was a great batch – and one of our strongest yet. We believe that everyone here wins simply by participating. The record attendance of the Demo Day also registers how FinTech, RegTech, and InsurTech is starting to grow in the public sphere. 2018 promises to be a very exciting year,” said Andreas Iten, co-founder and board member of F10.
“As the leading FinTech Incubator and Accelerator in Switzerland, we’re ready to rise to the challenges, and we are already looking forward to starting Batch III of the P2 Program – I urge any Startups considering applying to do so now, before the deadline for application expires – we have already had a lot of interest, and spots are filling up fast!”
F10’s deadline for applications from Startups in the FinTech, RegTech, and InsurTech Space is just a week away, on December 15th, 2017. Successful applicants will join the P2 Prototype to Product Program in Zürich between March-August 2018. Applications are welcomed from around the world and can be made here until the 15th.
Successful applicants to Batch III of the P2 Prototype to Product Program will join a unique accelerator environment at the heart of the Swiss financial system. F10 is sponsored by SIX, the Swiss stock exchange, and counts many notable corporate members on its board willing to collaborate with Startups. F10’s most recent board member is Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB), the nation’s biggest cantonal bank and fourth largest bank.
