A new NDRC start up programme for financial services startups, FinTech, has been launched.

Established in association with financial services firms, Bank of Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Mediolanum and State Street, NDRC FinTech will recruit 10 early stage financial services startups to work with over a part-time five week programme starting on 19th May, 2014.

Applicants to the FinTech programme should focus on areas of financial services where a new technology product could solve an existing problem, “be that retail banking, capital markets, risk and compliance or any other area where innovators spot an opportunity,” says the NDRC.

NDRC is also seeking people who have specialist skills in tech, sales, marketing, design, and operations, who are interested in joining a startup team.

“Anybody with an idea or specialist skills that will help get a new venture off the ground should check out ndrc.ie/fintech and I encourage all to come along to our first meet up information session on Wednesday March 19th,” says Ben Hurley, CEO, NDRC.
