Applications are ongoing for African Fintech Startups to be a part of the Barclays Techstars Accelerator programmme in Cape Town from 9 May to 2 August, 2017.

The Barclays Accelerator, powered by Techstars, focuses on innovative technology startups across all financial services. It selects 10 startups from its pool of applicants to immerse in a 13-week long training designed to grow the startups by providing access to Barclays facilities and mentoring from Fintech experts.

Selected Fintech startups also stand a chance to win up to $120, 000 (depending on location) with a 6% equity stake from Techstars. Lifetime membership as an alumni of the Techstars community also comes as a perk.

Here are some of the best things to strengthen applications are:

  • Furnish your team with business, technical, and other necessary skills.
  • the Barclays Accelerator is looking for great founders with ideas, it’s about the team and because of this, single founder companies are less likely to be accepted.
  • Improve on your prototype or product and reference it in the application.
  • Show that you’ve really thought about your business and have actually done something about it.
  • Your team must be capable of designing your solution and be ready to launch by the end of the 13-week programme.

To be a part of this, startups are expected to put in their applications before 2 February, 2017. Already set to take the challenge? Apply here.
