SuperCharged and Ready to Go: SuperCharger FinTech Accelerator Launches Its Second Programme
SuperCharger 2.0 has officially begun! On January 9, SuperCharger welcomed its new cohort — Bambu, Clare.ai, Entersoft, FinChat, Foris, KYC Chain, Squirro, and XNotes Alliance — to launch its second accelerator programme. The cohort will be collaborating with and learning from leading FinTech professionals over the next three months in Cyberport FinTech Smart Space, the largest FinTech space in Asia spanning 35,000 square feet.
The Launch Day attracted over 200 people from the Hong Kong FinTech community, including the sponsors Standard Chartered Bank, Fidelity International and InvestHK. The Launch presented an opportunity for the cohort to connect with an extensive network of entrepreneurs, investors and finance experts. After catchy three-minute pitches by the cohort, the lucky draw announced three winners who were gifted Neat Mastercards.
The launch took place in a timely lead-up to the StartmeupHK festival 2017, an initiative by InvestHK that showcases the city’s start-up scene and technological innovations. 3 companies from SuperCharger — Bambu, Clare.ai and KYC Chain — have been selected to pitch in FinTech Finals 2017, one of the highlights of the festival, reasserting the role of accelerators in supporting the growth of FinTech start-ups.
