Second Cambridge FinTech StartupWeekend on 5-7 June.

Are you interested in Finance and Innovation? Do you have a business idea and want to test if it is viable? Do you want to learn from others how to put your idea into business?


Accelerate Cambridge in partnership with BNY Mellon invites you to join the Second Cambridge FinTech StartupWeekend on 5-7 June.


Startup weekends are a hands-on experience where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if their start-up ideas are viable.

This three-day intensive event will bring together finance and innovation entrepreneurs who want to address challenges in tomorrow’s banking.


Participants will have 54 hours to test their idea, build a team and pitch to a panel of judges. The Cambridge FinTech Startup weekend will start on Friday 5 June, when delegates will have an opportunity to pitch their best ideas and inspire others to join their teams.
Then on Saturday, 6 June, participants will work with their teams and with the support of experienced mentors will validate ideas and build minimal viable product.


On the last day, Sunday 7 June, the teams will pitch their concepts to a panel of expert judges – successful entrepreneurs, leading academics and venture capitalists. The winning teams will have an opportunity to take their businesses to the next level.
