Yesterday, the New York City Investment Fund launched its 2012 FinTech Innovation Lab with its partner Accenture. The companies are all moved in to the Lab’s incubator space now, and Deputy Mayor Bob Steel welcomed the six companies last night at an opening dinner.
Unfortunately, all of the work for me in managing the program’s day-to-day logistics has only just begun. The next twelve weeks will include a Leadership Program with various panels and dinners, face-to-face meetings with VCs and bank CTOs, as well as newly-launched office hours with our all-star group of Entrepreneurs Network mentors. Lots to do, so apologies in advance if the rate of blogging decreases somewhat.
In any case, we have six amazing companies selected for the program this summer, and while I unfortunately can’t tell you their names just yet, keep your eyes peeled! The Investor Day / Demo Day, which will conclude this year’s FinTech Innovation Lab, will take place on July 18th, so stay tuned for the big reveal.
