F10 FinTech Incubator & Accelerator, the renowned global banking and insurance incubator and accelerator with hubs in Switzerland, Singapore and Spain, is planning to form a strategic partnership with New Energy Nexus, the international startup support organization and accelerator, to foster green and climate FinTech startups which decarbonize the global financial system.
F10 and New Energy Nexus will collaborate to establish the first global “Green & Climate FinTech Program” at a pivotal moment of engagement by major corporates on both net-zero commitments and FinTech integration. New Energy Nexus will provide support in “climate FinTech” selection, mentorship, programming, networking, and investment to complement F10’s established core incubator and accelerator curriculum in order to bring these solutions to the forefront of digital financial technology and decarbonization.
“The intersection of digital financial technology and the climate emergency is real. Climate Fintech can help make net-zero pathways and clean energy more accessible, measurable and bankable. We’re thrilled to partner with F10 to help bring Climate Fintech innovations to market – enabling both individuals and corporates to save, spend, lend, and invest in ways which put the planet first”, explained Aaron McCreary, Climate Fintech Lead at New Energy Nexus.
“There is immense potential and a strong use case for Green & Climate FinTechs in the market. Together with New Energy Nexus we can create the perfect environment for these cutting-edge startups to thrive and positively impact the global financial sector”, added Andreas Iten, Co-Founder of F10.
