F10 Launches Climate Fintech-Focused Incubator in the Nordics and Balticsby Fintechnews Nordics August 25, 2022
F10, an innovation ecosystem for fintech and insurtech with hubs in Switzerland, Singapore, and Spain, announced the launch of an incubation programme dedicated to climate fintech across the Nordics and Baltics, expanding its reach within Europe.
The goal is to support these promising startups by providing training, coaching and mentoring on a variety of topics to strengthen the teams, and to secure successful business and investment opportunities ahead.
The programme will also provide exposure and introductions to leading organisations, banks, corporates, fintechs, advisors, and investors.
It will be run six months, built around 5 masterclasses, culminating in a demo day to celebrate the startup achievements and present them to leading organisations, banks, corporates, and investors.
For deeper engagement, and for becoming part of the thriving sustainability and fintech ecosystems, the programme will run in various locations.
Doconomy is one of the first supporters of the programme, bringing in their unique experience in building a climate fintech on a global scale.
Based in Sweden, the company provides leading impact data services for individuals and corporations to help educate, engage and reduce environmental impact.
For this programme, call for applications are open for early-stage climate fintech and insurtech startups, delivering impact, that have early customer traction, with a prototype solution, MVP, or as a pilot.
The programme will support startups in early stage, to become more business ready, and to be attractive for investors.
Applications are open for startups from all around the world, that are aiming for international reach, and looking to develop their venture in a region with leading ecosystems.
Anders Norlin, Head of F10 Nordics and Baltics commented,
“The region has developed a strong innovation culture with thriving tech startup ecosystems, utilising the high digitalisation rate and tech savvy population. One area that has developed particularly strong the last decade, is fintech with exponential growth.
This, together with sustainability awareness, creates a “green model” of integrating sustainability, tech and finance, paving the way for climate, and green fintech. We are excited to drive this forward with our new programme.”
