Applications will be accepted until Oct. 1 for companies interested in becoming part of the fall program of the new Wells Fargo Startup Accelerator, a semiannual boot camp for innovators whose technology ideas will help the financial services industry.
The accelerator will give 10 to 20 young companies annually the opportunity to develop and refine products in a collaborative environment that features Wells Fargo subject matter experts and purchasing managers offering workshops and individual coaching. Besides gaining a direct equity investment of $50,000 to $500,000, each firm selected could become a vendor to the bank.
Companies chosen for the accelerators will offer innovation in such sectors as payments, deposits, fraud and operations. More information about applying is available at https://accelerator.wellsfargo.com.
