The program consists of three monthly 3-day bootcamps, the first one to start on 22 February, online due to continued lockdown restrictions in Switzerland. As soon as possible, F10 aims to return to in-person program delivery in Zurich as business relationships are best being built in-person. The cohort will conclude with a public Pitch Party on 5 May.
The F10 Acceleration Program, which premiered with its first cohort in 2020, aims to facilitate POCs, pilots and other collaboration between some of the most innovative Startups and Swiss banks, insurance companies and the Swiss stock exchange SIX. It is the door opener for post-seed Startups, helping them succeed in the Swiss ecosystem and boost innovation for F10 Corporate Partners – to build the financial and insurance services of tomorrow. Participating Startups will be supported by high-caliber Mentors and Investors at F10 in Zurich and will also increase chances to gain exposure in the Spanish and Singaporean ecosystem.
