Fintech Companies, Listen Up | Applications Open for Queen City Fintech Spring Cohort

by Angela King

Queen City Fintech Class 8 is set to run March 19 to June 6, 2018… LET’S GO!

Charlotte, NC is the second largest financial center in the U.S. With a low cost of living and access to some of the world’s biggest banks, Queen City Fintech thinks that there is no better city in the country to grow a fintech startup than The Queen City.

Queen City Fintech, located at one of the top five largest innovation centers in the country, is led by former Bank of America executive and serial entrepreneur Dan Roselli. The 12-week accelerator program is designed to mature financial technology startups through intense mentorship from leading banking executives, business development professionals, and venture capitalists and attorneys, among others from Charlotte’s robust business community.

The process

Queen City Fintech will select startups with technology or customer acquisition models strategically aligned with its banking partners. In addition to mentorship, accepted companies will also receive an upfront capital infusion of $20,000 per company in exchange for 6 percent equity, with the potential for follow-on funding for the top performers in the program.

Accepted startups receive housing and must relocate to Charlotte for the duration of the program.

Applications for the Spring cohort are open now. Apply here.
