To support the growth of the fintech sector across Atlantic Canada, Atlantic Fintech and Fintech Cadence are collaborating to give fintechs across the region access to the complete range of training and services provided to startups through the Fintech Hub platform.
The Fintech Hub is a rolling-intake (no-fee, no-equity) program for early-stage fintech startups that provides access to workshops, peer networking, coaching hours, and service provider credits.
Fintech Cadence established the Fintech Hub to bring underserved entrepreneurs the relevant support when they need it. Participants will be able to choose which opportunities fit their goals, and will have one-on-one support from the Hub Lead to help them align their engagement with their growth goals.
“Over the past three years we have been tracking the growth of fintech in the region and working with entrepreneurs from idea stage through to scaling. The regulatory requirements and specialized business models of fintech provide unique challenges and opportunities for startups in this sector that, through this partnership with Fintech Cadence, we are now able to support at a broader scale”, says Alicia Roisman Ismach, Head of Fintech at Atlantic Fintech.
“We are excited to continue the growth of our partnership with Fintech Cadence that has been focused on helping to create a better financial system for all Canadians.”
Companies participating in the Fintech Hub program become part of a fintech-focused community that will assist them with gaining industry knowledge, connections, expertise, and talent.
Atlantic Canadian companies interested in learning more about the program can register to participate in an information webinar session on February 9th at 12pm EST.
This program has been made possible through financial support from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.
“This partnership further showcases the importance of collaboration in different regions to establish a thriving fintech ecosystem across Canada. We all are aware of the challenges of building a fintech, with Fintech Cadence and Atlantic Fintech coming together to provide
services to early-stage fintechs, we aim to decrease these exact challenges. Additionally, providing the Hub services to the startups in the Atlantic provinces ensures that all regions are developing at the same rate and have access to the same services.” says Layial El-Hadi, Executive Director of Fintech Cadence.
