F10’s Scaleup program enables selected teams to bring their project to the next level with the support of coaches, mentors and industry experts. This year, the program takes on a new format to facilitate opportunities for pilots, POCs and collaboration between agile Startups and Swiss banks, insurance companies and the Swiss Stock Exchange SIX. The new design enables fintech companies to find reliable partners for pilot projects, hence addressing one of the main hurdles faced by FinTech companies.
Out of more than 80 teams that applied to enter the program F10 nominated 12 from all over the world including two from Switzerland. The startups are:
