The FIS Fintech Accelerator program is focused on identifying and fostering startup financial technology firms with promising, high-potential technologies that advance the way the world pays, banks and invests.

The 2021 program received applications from fintech companies in the U.S. and 29 other countries.

“The future of fintech will be impacted by innovators that bring forward breakthrough technology ideas that have real-world value for financial services organizations. That’s the spirit of innovation we look for each year in our Accelerator program, and we are seeing it again with this year’s applicants.
