FinTech Innovation Lab

New York, London, Hong Kong — A mentorship program bringing early stage financial technology companies and leading banks together.


The FinTech Innovation Lab is an annual 12 week accelerator program that brings together early stage financial technology companies and the world’s leading banks.

Held in a trusted, collaborative, non-sales environment, this innovative program is an opportunity for the participating start-ups to work with potential future customers, validate propositions, gain valuable insights into the banking sector and develop strong relationships with senior industry executives. Entrepreneurs developing potentially game-changing technologies for financial services—particularly in the areas of big data and analytics, mobile and wireless, payments, risk management, security, compliance, and social media and collaboration technologies—are selected to participate in the program.

Accenture launched the lab in New York in 2010 in collaboration with the Partnership for New York City and we’ve since developed the program in London and Hong Kong where the three programs run counter cyclically.
