The CedarIBSI FinTech Lab

Banks lean on us to keep them in sync with FinTech trends and help them identify the next best FinTech solution, whereas FinTech founders use our intelligence to grow, build content and strategise.

IBSI FinTech Lab provides an excellent opportunity for banks to ‘window shop’ a wide range of innovative FinTech and banking solutions from around the world. They can run POCs on these solutions prior to making a buy decision in the IT safe environment of the lab rather than a live bank environment. Membership to our accelerator in Dubai gives you market access, a virtual sandbox for you to play with dummy bank data, access to investors, growth enablers in the form of IBSI research and analysts, and physical lab facilities to woo your next client win.
