T-Hub has launched Fintech Arcade, a market access program for Fintech startups that are looking for strategic partnerships with corporates. The idea of the programme is to help startups find right corporate partners who could license, buy-out their products or on-board them as vendors.
T-Hub says that the program will bring together corporates looking to connect with startups in fintech space and explore possible partnerships. Startups too, will get a chance pitch their innovations and ideas, present new technologies, or propose new business models to corporates envisioning to revolutionise the Fintech space.
Within the Fintech space, the focus areas will be smart payments, wealth tech, RPa, cybersecurity, lending, financial inclusion and next-gen analytics.
Whatâ€™s in it for startups?
Startups will get to explore the current challenges that corporates are facing and potentially co-create solutions. With an access to over 15 corporate customers, it gives startups an opportunity to scale up. The event will also have pitching sessions, which will be followed by one-on-one or network meetings with the corporates present at the event.
Corporates too, will have the opportunity to explore innovative products and services being developed by startups that could potentially transform their financial operations. It also gives corporate a chance to invest in emerging tech startups that are building future-ready solutions with the potential to transform banking operations. Corporates looking to partner with startups will have the opportunity to interact with fintech startup founders and create synergies. At the same time, they can also network with fellow corporate partners from respective innovation teams.
The program is scheduled to take place on March 8 in T-Hubâ€™s campus in Hyderabad and applications are open for it.
