We are thrilled to announce that OKO is one of the next ten companies to the 2018 Barclays Accelerator, powered by Techstars in Tel Aviv. The program will run for the next 15 weeks with a Demo day will taking place on the 5th of September 2018 in Tel Aviv.
The program brings together two powerful networks: Barclays, who is shaping the banking landscape and quickly making itself the first partner of choice for the most promising FinTech companies, and Techstars, the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed. The 1300 portfolio companies of Techstars have raised over $4.6 billion in capital and 139 have been acquired. Together, Barclays and Techstars give founders the best chance for success.
In addition to being selective, this program is remarkably global and diverse. We will be joined by entrepreneurs from Montenegro, Ecuador, India, Italy and the USA. They were selected from an applicant pool focused on next generation technology for the financial services industry. Companies in this class have launched exciting businesses using technology to address opportunities in options trading, compliance, cyber-security, open banking, supply chain, legal, payments, insurance, property management and lending.
We would like to thank the
mentors, sponsors, partners and alumni for their generous support. We look forward to a great class!
