ICBA announced the launch of its second ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator in partnership with The Venture Center in Little Rock, Ark.
ICBA ThinkTECH 2.0 will build upon the success and momentum of the 2019 program, which accelerated a number of award-winning fintech companies, including MK Decision, now partnered with ICBA Bancard; Teslar Software, winner of the Bankers Choice Award at ICBA LIVE® 2019; and Invest Sou Sou, winner of a FinovateSpring Best of Show award.
“The second ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator marks the next phase in community banking’s innovation journey and positions our industry as leaders in fintech,” ICBA Services Network Chief Operating Officer Kevin Tweddle said in a statement.
A selection committee of ICBA staff and community bank executives will serve as mentors to early-stage companies vying for top spots in the selection process. Finalists will receive ICBA investments and undergo a rigorous 12-week bootcamp program at The Venture Center scheduled from January through March 2020.
