Kassel. At Celebrating Innovation in Cologne on the 10th October, fino was selected as a participant for the German Accelerator Tech Program. Partnering-Pro Christian Heimrich represented fino in situ.
The fino team has always been fascinated by Silicon Valley and its founder atmosphere. After a brief trip over there during the early summer, founders Florian Christ and Lena Justen knew: “We want to end up here, too.” Now, just a few months later, that wish has turned into reality.
fino has been selected for the German Accelerator Tech Program. Last night, at Celebrating Innovation in Cologne, the company was declared the winner. Now, an instructive time in San Francisco and New York lies ahead of the team, during which fino will receive support from German Accelerator Tech Program for the market launch in the USA. Bootcamps, workshops, mentor meetings and networking are on the agenda.
fino started in 2015 with a staff of five. Today, the team works with over 100 employees in the three locations Kassel, Hamburg and Lübeck on a broad portfolio of digital products and services for clients from a banking and insurance background, as well as for end consumers. The companies counting on fino’s solutions include German and international credit institutions like Commerzbank, Sparkasse, Volksbank, insurances like R+V and other large enterprises like DATEV, SCHUFA, B.Braun, and the Lufthansa offspring Miles&More.Back
