Six new fintech start-ups will attend the ING FinTech Village programme in Belgium. For four months, these start-ups will work, together with their sponsor, on implementing a Proof of Concept (a prototype that is ready to be brought to market). The results will be presented on 26 June 2018 during the Demo day.
Out of a group of more than 550 start-ups focused on the financial sector, three Belgian, a Swedish, a Luxembourg and an English start-up were selected to take part in the third edition of the ING FinTech Village programme. The six participating fintechs are Accountable, Asteria, Koopol, Rokestate, REGnosys and Snapswap.
During the programme, the start-ups will be challenged to sharpen the focus of their business model and their entrepreneurship. An equally important element and also one of the great strengths of the programme is that the fintechs work closely with ING to implement a Proof of Concept. That will enable them to adjust their product, where necessary, in consultation with ING as a potential client. The startups will be guided in the process by several mentors, two of which are senior managers of ING in Luxembourg.
