Fintech Loft Startup Challenge 2021

We want to offer you the opportunity to take part in a pitching competition for our new fund, the Wellstreet Fintech Fund I, where the winners will have the possibility to pitch for our Fintech Board with some of the most well-renowned names within fintech in the Nordics. What we want to see are companies that capitalize on open banking APIs with a strong focus on a B2B business model and great customer experience. If our Fintech Board likes what they see, we will consider an investment that would provide you not only with capital but an engaged investment team with history in the industry. We will also provide you with a spot in Wellstreet Launchpad, our program in collaboration with Google For Startups, and in Wellstreet Fintech Loft, our program in partnership with AWS. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

We look forward to hearing from you. Happy pitching!
