Applications Open – Cohort 5
The Envestnet | Yodlee Incubator helps disruptive startups launch products that leverage transactional financial data. Applications are currently open through August 31st, 2018.
This is your chance to develop your vision by tapping into Yodlee’s award-winning platform, technical support, mentorship, guidance, and exclusive membership in the broader Envestnet | Yodlee ecosystem.
We are looking for interesting new use cases for financial data or instant account verification. PropertyTech, InsureTech, small business or 1099 accounting, payment streamlining, account opening – access to bank and credit card data will help them all.
Our program is non-residential, meaning you don’t have to move to Silicon Valley. Work where you are, and during our 6-month program, we will fly you to California for three week-long bootcamps and for Demo Day, with mentors and experts available between sessions. Click here to see photos of the Incubator in action.
Successful applicants will have a talented team, market opportunity, strong business potential, technical abilities, commitment to developing using the Yodlee API, and the ability to participate in the 6-month program including travel to Silicon Valley.
What to expect if selected:
- 6-month program
- 12 months free access to the Yodlee platform
- Dedicated technical support to help implement the APIs
- Access to an extensive network of mentors, industry experts, partners, and customers
- Marketing and PR help
- Access to influential industry events to help drive awareness
- Reimbursements for travel to Silicon Valley for Bootcamps and Demo Day
- You keep all your equity
We are stage, sector, and geography agnostic. Because we don’t take equity in our companies, you are able to work with other incubators and accelerators; in fact, we have partnerships with several.
Bootcamps are 3-5 day intensive sessions of workshops, networking, and panel discussions focused on business and technical aspects of your company. Watch video
This is where you pitch your success and product to a large audience of VCs, angels, and influencers in the fintech space. Watch video
