F10 Acceleration Program February – May 2021
Take the fast-track to scale your business

We help tackle the #1 problem FinTechs face: selling your product to big banks and insurance companies, by providing a mechanism for fostering meaningful collaboration between startups and F10 Corporate Partners. The Acceleration Program provides a unique opportunity to build trust and relationships with potential clients and investors, as well as industry experts and peers. 

It’s a 3-month accelerator program for a cohort of 10 post-revenue FinTech, InsurTech, RegTech, and DeepTech companies. The core of the program are three 3-day bootcamps taking place on-site in Zurich and/or online (depending on the Covid-19 situation) where you will meet the F10 ecosystem, investors and corporates that are ready to work with you. During the bootcamps, F10 will facilitate workshops and master classes focusing on sales, fundraising, and scaling your organization, as well as matchmaking with potential clients, partners, and investors. 


Applications are welcome from startups based anywhere in the world or within Switzerland, provided they meet these requirements:

  1. FinTech, InsurTech, RegTech, or DeepTech company with potential to collaborate with F10 Corporate Partners
  2. A scalable software product is available and ready to be implemented with customers
  3. Customer traction can be proven with a minimum of $200k ARR
  4. Previous investment has been secured
  5. A strong and stable management team with diversified skills
  6. Two senior team members available for all bootcamps, minimum one of them a co-founder


Based on all applications received for the program, F10 will pre-select 20-30 startups based on application quality, product-market fit, traction, and suitability for collaboration with F10 Corporate Partners. In a second round, the F10 Corporate Partners SIX, Julius Baer, R3, Generali, Baloise Group will vote to determine the group of startups selected.
