Building the largest Open Banking ecosystem in Portugal
It all starts with your online application. We will select those startups that better fit with the program and that can clearly benefit the most from collaborating with SIBS. We’ll be looking at how solid the business model is, growth potential and scalability, the complementarity of skills within the team, how the product delivers value and how SIBS can provide value. The top 25 startups will move forward.
The one-week Bootcamp represents a strong and ambitious concept in the literal and inspirational dimension. We will figure out which of the 25 startups selected exceed themselves, enhance their leadership skills and we will test their limits and management skills, to see who’s moving forward with us.
A startup accelerator by SIBS, supported by Beta-i, that’s the best of both worlds: amazing mentoring & program meets the big-money clients, network and industry knowledge. The 10 startups that are going to be part of the accelerator will enjoy 8 weeks of individual coaching & pitch practice, several workshops & mentoring sessions.
Demo Day is the day you have to present to SIBS the solution your startup has been working during the 2 acceleration months.
The most promising startups will have the priceless opportunity of integrating SIBS for 6 months and gain access to support services in order to fine-tune the final product.
Incubation at SIBS means way more than having the opportunity of sharing an office space with one of the top fintech companies in the world. It means having SIBS collaborators as your mentors, having access to the organization’s resources and tools.
SIBS wants to continue to collaborate and support other Fintech.The launch of an innovative accelerator and the first one in payments area to be done in Portugal, allowed us to evolve as an organization, to be even more disruptive in terms of innovation and to develop more e effective collaboration models with this new ecosystem of organizations and entrepreneurs.
