The wait is over. The F10 Incubator and Accelerator announced the final selection of the Top 15 successful start-ups who will take part in Batch III of the Prototype-to-Product Program. We are thrilled and very proud to announce that we have been selected! What an exciting journey we’ve had so far, and we are just getting started!
One of The Most Rigorous Selection Processes in The Industry
It began with more than 260 start-ups from 50 countries around the world, from which we were selected for the Top 60. We were then given the opportunity to pitch our idea online and before we knew it, we were chosen to be among the Top 25 candidates invited for a 2-day assessment at the F10 offices based in Zürich. We endured challenging, but insightful experiences, where we presented and pitched our project to potential mentors, industry leaders and many other start-ups just like us. The endless advice, ideas and contacts we took home with us were and still are invaluable.
Now our journey truly begins. As part of the program we will benefit from having our own office space at the F10 office, but more importantly, the full support and assistance of the incubator mentors and coaches, as well as industry specialists. We will have the chance to share ideas with some of the country’s leading banking and financial institutions, such as SIX, ERI Bancaire, Julius Bär, PwC, the Baloise Group, Eny Finance, Generali, and its latest members, Zürcher Kantonalbank, and Raiffeisen.
When Pressure Brings Insights
The selection process was also an incredible learning experience for us. Our immersion in the Swiss and International Fintech & banking industry, as well the feedback we received during the F10 qualification phase, has resulted in a lot of questioning, brainstorming, and idea-pivoting for us. Our vision has quickly expanded by listening to the needs and concerns of leaders in the industry.
In today’s fast-paced, information-rich world, the mind-set of the user has changed. They no longer want to be tied to one bank. They want adaptability, freedom of choice and the ability to easily manage it all from one place.
We have distilled all the research and insights we’ve accumulated through this entire experience so far and have come to realise eHyve’s place in the industry. Our core platform, which includes account aggregation and an innovative data model, is a solid base for something much bigger. So watch this space as our journey unfolds, we have much more to offer and great things are coming.
