Falls Fintech, a Central Payments accelerator, is pleased to announce the culmination event of our first two accelerator cohorts with a double demo day. This virtual event will showcase 3-5 minute product demos from fintech companies selected to participate in Cohort 1 (Spring 2020) and Cohort 2 (Fall 2020). “March kicked off our inaugural cohort with five promising, early stage fintechs pushing through the status quo to deliver game changing financial products,” says Nikkee Rhody, SVP, and Managing Director. “The fall cohort brings five new companies with compelling solutions that everyone interested in fintech will definitely want to see,” recommends Rhody.

During each 12-week session, Falls Fintech cohort participants work continuously with industry leaders and subject matter experts from the financial services and technology ecosystems to develop their products, capabilities, features and connections in preparation for market launch. “We have term sheets with nearly all of our accelerator participants and as they continue to inspire innovation and betterment of financial services, we couldn’t be more proud to be their bank partner,” says Rhody.
