Natwest金融科技加速器将于4月亮相伦敦

本周,英国Natwest银行宣布,将在今年4月分别在伦敦、曼彻斯特、布里斯托和爱丁堡推出4个金融科技加速器。

据悉,入选的80家金融科技创企将获得专门的“技术团队导师”与政府机构联系支持。在为期6到18个月的加速期间,所有的办公空间、互联网、商业咨询和指导、Natwest银行网络与供应链访问权均免费。

Natwest隶属于苏格兰皇家银行集团,目前在英国各地共拥有12个加速器,未来计划通过免费指导为来自各行各业的5000多名企业家提供帮助,同时为50个初级阶段企业提供为期12周的“前加速期”课程。

戴尔EMC将为Natwest加速器公司提供建议,而律师事务所Pinsent Masons将为该项目的合作伙伴提供法律建议。

除加速器外,Natwest还在上周推出了一个名叫Cora的动画聊天机器人,帮助客户更快地解决业务疑惑。

事实上,英国大型银行近年来都相继推出了一系列金融科技加速器,并希望借此保持与其他各种规模银行的领先优势。比如,巴克莱银行、桑坦德银行、汇丰银行和劳埃德银行都与伦敦金融科技加速器有不同程度的关系。

 

 

 

Natwest bank will launch new fintech accelerators in four cities across the UK in April, including one in the capital, it announced today.

The bank will launch units in London, Manchester, Bristol and Edinburgh, supporting up to 80 fintech firms with a "technology team mentor" and access to government contacts.

The six- to 18-month acceleration programmes offer office space and internet access for free, business advice and coaching, as well as "access to the bank’s networks and supply chains", the bank said.

Britain's big banks have launched a wave of fintech accelerators in recent years as they try to stay ahead of competition from other banks of all sizes and the efforts of start-ups backed by technology companies who have previously had less interest into branching into finance.

Barclays, Santander, HSBC and Lloyds are all involved with London fintech accelerators to differing degrees.

Meanwhile, Natwest last week launched an animated chat bot to answer customer queries, going by the name of "Cora", as it tries to keep its operations ahead of the competition.

Dell EMC will also offer advice to firms in the Natwest accelerators, while law firm Pinsent Masons will offer firms legal advice as partners on the project.

Natwest, which is owned by Royal Bank of Scotland, has 12 accelerator locations across the UK, which together can host up to 1,000 people in new businesses.

The fintech accelerator coincides with plans to support 5,000 entrepreneurs across industries with free mentoring and coaching. It will also provide "pre-acceleration" 12-week courses to 50 early-stage start-ups.
