The Fintech Academy is a 4-months online program for prospective Fintech Entrepreneurs that covers Fintech Fundamentals blended with key business concepts. The delivery is done through a mix of self-paced learning, collaborative projects, workshops/sessions, practical assignments and 1 to 1 mentorship. The program ends with a matchmaking phase to connect startups with investment opportunities through acceleration, incubation, direct investment and connection with corporates. All the participants must share passion and ideas towards building a Fintech startup.
The program is divided into 2 learning stages: learn, ideate and build. During the learning phase, participants are learning through online content, workshops, live sessions and group projects. During the ideation stage, learners are encouraged to form, break and re-form teams of co-founders. In the building phase, every team will be assigned a mentor to follow up on their execution and advise them on building some sort of traction until the end of the program.
The program ends with a graduation day and a showcase which will introduce a number of already founded startups as a result of this program and are ready to embark on their ambitious missions to kick off and sustain their startups with the help of ecosystem players.
