Non-profit fintech development organization Fintech Cadence has received a $200,000 grant for the next two years from TD Bank Group to expand the Fintech Hub across Canada, one of their latest flagship initiatives.
From bold ideas to thriving startups, the Fintech Hub provides a centralized base for ambitious Canadian fintech leaders to build, grow and scale their solutions through free access to the following services: coaching hours, peer-to-peer connections, discounted software and service providers, business workshops, content related events and access to a wider fintech network of leaders.
Founded in 2017, Fintech Cadence’s mission is to advance the financial system to serve all Canadians for the better. They foster innovation in the Canadian fintech sector through education, supporting early-stage founders and collaborating with financial institutions, corporates, regulators, universities and other key players to identify and help solve emergent industry challenges.
The Fintech Hub, a fully virtual no-fee no-equity program and a newly added flagship program to Fintech Cadence’s roster of initiatives, is dedicated to founders in their early stages of validation, discovery and also welcomes startups up to pre-Series A that are using technology to build a more accessible, dynamic and diverse financial products and services landscape for Canadians.
Founders are able to choose which opportunities fit their objectives – whether it be validation, product market fit, compliance, raising funds and more – and have access to one-on-one support from the Hub Lead to help them align their involvement with their growth goals. It covers a wide variety of themes and is open year-round.
