Swiss fintech incubator and accelerator F10 has selected 12 growth-stage startups with a focus on sustainable finance and small and mid-size enterprise (SME) services.
The startups were selected from a total of 384 applications globally joining the newly designed accelerator at its Zurich hub.
The 3-month program which kicks off on the 6th of September aims to accelerate post-revenue startups and to facilitate successful collaborations with F10 corporate partners.
The accelerator looks to setting the stage for and developing successful collaborations, implemented via a 360-degree startup analysis, an in-depth collaboration playbook facilitated by a dedicated F10 coach, and regular knowledge and experience exchange between participating startups and the corporate partners.
Startups selected for this new accelerator will gain lifetime access to the F10 Startup Services.
This comprises flexible, on-demand content spanning the F10 Academy, online learning, and peer to peer exchange based on startups’ needs, the F10 Mentor program, access to a network of more than 250 mentors across all hubs, as well as the F10 Investor Introduction Service.
“This corporate program has been developed based on 5 years of practical experience with open innovation challenges of different corporate partners.”
“It is a structured process to identify and assess the most suitable entrepreneurial partners and to facilitate an efficient and effective start of a corporate-startup collaboration,” said Gerrit Sindermann, Head of F10 Switzerland.
