Our mission to help banks evolve digitally without losing their high-touch, personal customer relationships is well-served by this program.

Shastic today announced its participation in the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) third annual ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator, in partnership with The Venture Center. The ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator program fosters fintech-community bank collaboration.

“Today is a big day for Shastic as we proudly join the third ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator,” said Joseariel Gomez, CEO at Shastic. “We are passionate about supporting community banks in their innovation efforts. Our mission to help banks evolve digitally without losing their high-touch, personal customer relationships is well-served by this program. We are excited to meet with community bankers and to learn more about how we can help their communities through today’s unique challenges."

Shastic robotic lending co-pilot application, “Elle,” sits on top of existing systems and can be implemented within days and without the need for dedicated IT support. Connecting lending agents with customers in seconds, Elle also recaptures up to 15 percent of applications lost through the application process and minimizes manual processing tasks which can increase team productivity by 300 percent.

“Shastic was chosen from hundreds of candidates for this year’s program based on the merit of its offering, along with the talent and dedication of its founders, which all share our vision of blending technology with relationship banking and standout service to deliver the ultimate customer experience,” ICBA Senior Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer Charles Potts said. “We’re excited to share this relevant and timely solution with our community bank members and look forward to a long and productive relationship that delivers on the promise of innovation at a time when the customer experience is rapidly changing.”

“We are proud to partner with ICBA in selecting the cohort to help enhance community bank innovation, which will benefit local communities,” Wayne Miller, executive director of The Venture Center said. “For fintechs seeking meaningful relationships, the ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator provides an abundance of opportunity.”
