EverKnock has been selected as one of eight startups to participate in the FinTech Wales Foundry accelerator programme.
The programme connects startups with leading Welsh financial services institutions to explore how technology can be of benefit to the sector, and to leverage the experience of the local ecosystem, with an overall aim to help founders overcome the challenges of validating, fundraising and scaling a new venture successfully.
EverKnock’s co-founder and CEO, Dan Awais-Dean, said: “I’m unbelievably excited for EverKnock to be chosen to join the FinTech Wales Foundry accelerator. 2022 is the year that we take the stress out of home-buying!”
Following a rigorous interview and selection process, the Foundry and its sponsors extended offers to eight startups from across the UK and Europe, who will begin the programme on 26 January 2022. The accelerator’s format will deliver intensive mentoring sessions with experienced industry leaders, before culminating in an event showcasing the startups’ progress in mid-April.
Neil Cocker, programme director of the accelerator, commented: “This year’s cohort represents some of the most forward-thinking startups in financial literacy, data management, blockchain, AI, and other areas of financial challenges with a growing need for innovation. We look forward to witnessing the transformation these startups bring to the financial ecosystem with their innovative digital solutions.”
