Accelerator Startupbootcamp FinTech has opened applications for its 2015 London programme.

The 2014 programme saw 10 startups from eight different countries create 21 projects with Startupbootcamp FinTech partners including Rabobank, Lloyds Banking Group and MasterCard, and many have gone on to raise funding since the programme.

This year Startupbootcamp FinTech is visiting 20 locations around the world, including Tel Aviv, Paris and Zurich, as well as new locations, including Sydney, Toronto, San Francisco, Johannesburg and Dubai on its FastTrack tour.

In each location 10 startups will be chosen to join a FastTrack session, which is an opportunity to gain access to feedback on their product and business model in 1:1 sessions with mentors and investors.

The 20 best startups from around the world will be invited to join selection days in London in July and after four days of intensive workshops, mentoring and pitching, 10 startups will be chosen to join the 2015 accelerator programme.

The programme will provide the startups with three months of free office space; €15,000 (£10,700) in cash and €450,000 in free services from global partners like Google, Amazon Web Services and others.

Nektarios Liolios, global managing director for Startupbootcamp FinTech, said: “After a successful London programme in 2014 and an unprecedented amount of applicants for our Singapore programme, the logical next step is to open up the programme to an even wider community of startups by tapping into the untouched startup ecosystems around the world, where we are seeing fintech companies emerging."
