Blog: ThinkTECH Accelerator tripled number of bank participants

After 12 fully immersive weeks and hundreds of meetings with industry stakeholders, the ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator 2021 cohort revealed a glimpse into the future of high-tech, high-touch solutions tailored for community banks and their customers, ICBA's Chief Innovation Officer Charles Potts writes in a new Main Street Matters blog.  

This year's Accelerator program tripled the number of bank participants, hosted more than 500 decisionmakers, and boasted over 1,000 pitches before the cohort presented their solutions to community bankers at two ICBA ThinkTECH showcases. 

"The ThinkTECH Accelerator is just one of many ways ICBA supports our members’ innovation journey and partners with leading providers to promote community-bank-enabling technology," writes Potts.
