You may apply, but not to the FinTech Dublin programme. Unfortunately applications are only being accepted from companies in the republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. If you would like to participate in the programme, please consider entering either the New York or London programmes (http://www.fintechinnovationlab.com/)
Yes, you can apply to the programme even if you have received funding. If you have, please be sure to include details regarding past rounds of financing.
Please note this concern in the "additional information" section at the end of the application along with the name of the firm with which there is a potential conflict. That firm(s) will not have access to your application during the initial review process. However, they will have access to the elevator pitch and basic corporate info (i.e. company name, address, contact)
We will not accept late applications under any circumstances.
The FinTech Innovation Lab focuses on early and growth-stage companies with at least a beta technology/product, especially those which will benefit from the senior access and relationships at the programme’s participating financial institutions. We are also interested in growth stage companies that have a product being deployed outside financial services that are interested in entering the financial services vertical.
To maximise the benefit of participation in the programme, your company's core team should be based in Dublin for the duration of the three month programme from January to March 2015. Please refer to The Programme page for more information.
Your core management team (Founder/CTO/CEO etc) should be available in Dublin for the duration of the programme.
