又一家苏格兰大学推出金融科技加速器项目

近日,斯特拉思克莱德大学推出了一个全新的金融科技加速器计划,以帮助巩固苏格兰作为金融创新领导者的地位。

这项新计划将于2019年3月开始,该计划在Strathclyde 100活动中正式公布。

借助这个Strathclyde 100平台,早期创企者可以向潜在支持者展示自己的想法。

据悉,参与该加速器项目的企业家将获得相关新星计划的多种帮扶,以及金融部门提供的支持(其中包括1万英镑的资金和实物支持)。

斯特拉斯克莱德大学首席商务官Adrian Gillespie表示:

“这对斯特拉斯克莱德和金融科技来说都是一个很大的进步。在我们发展格拉斯哥城市创新区合作伙伴关系时,金融科技是斯特拉斯克莱德关注的重点领域之一。”

斯特拉斯克莱德大学一直处于金融科技运动的最前沿,并于2017年9月在斯特拉思克莱德商学院推出了英国首个金融科技硕士课程。

这个为期12个月的强化课程将严谨的学术课程与FinTech的创业和创新元素相结合,包括财务方法、数据分析、监管以及区块链和分布式账本等技术的应用。

此外,该大学金融监管与创新中心(CeFRI)在先驱报和格拉斯哥市商会主办的2018年激励城市奖中获得了教育奖。

对新加速器计划感兴趣的参与者可以从2019年2月开始申请。有兴趣的人士可以联系金融监管与创新中心主任Daniel Broby。

The University of Strathclyde has launched a new FinTech Accelerator Programme to help cement Scotland’s position as a leader in financial innovation.

The new programme, to begin in March 2019, was announced at the Strathclyde 100 event, a platform for early-stage businesses to pitch their ideas to potential supporters.

Entrepreneurs accepted onto the FinTech Accelerator will have access to the benefits offered by the Rising Stars programme, as well as a suite of support bespoke to the financial sector – an overall package of £10,000 in monetary and in-kind support.

Key sector

The FinTech Accelerator programme will be a pathway of Strathclyde Entrepreneurial Network’s existing Rising Stars programme and will encourage the development and growth of FinTech businesses.

Adrian Gillespie, Chief Commercial Officer at the University of Strathclyde, who provided the welcome to delegates at the event, said: “This is a great step forward for Strathclyde and FinTech.

FinTech is one of the key sectors Strathclyde is focusing on as we develop the Glasgow City Innovation District partnership.”

The Strathclyde 100 event hosted presentations from seven FinTech companies working with the University of Strathclyde, Tontine & FinTech Scotland.

The University of Strathclyde has been at the forefront of the FinTech movement and in September 2017 launched the UK’s first FinTech Masters programme at the Strathclyde Business School.

The intensive, 12-month programme combines a rigorous academic curriculum with the entrepreneurial and innovative elements of FinTech, including financial method, data analytics, regulation, and the applications of technologies such as blockchain and distributed ledgers.

Since then, the University’s Centre for Financial Regulation & Innovation (CeFRI) has won the Education Award at the 2018 Inspiring City Awards hosted by the Herald and Glasgow City Chamber of Commerce.

Applications for participants interested in the new accelerator programme will begin in February 2019.  Interested parties can contact Daniel Broby, Director for the Centre for Financial Regulation & Innovation at Daniel.Broby@strath.ac.uk.
