19 fintech startups selected for Nordea’s second Accelerator programme

Nordea Startup Accelerator, an intensive 12-week programme for encouraging fintech startups, has selected 19 startups that have been offered to start working at Nordea’s premises in Stockholm and Helsinki from 12 September to develop their fintech ideas together with Nordea.

Over 200 companies from across the world applied to Nordea’s second Accelerator programme. The first Accelerator programme was held in the winter of 2015–2016. The startups received over EUR 600,000 in new financing, and Nordea has continued to work with two of them (Jenny and Feelingstream).

Last week, Nordea’s Oslo office welcomed 35 startups to help them develop their fintech ideas. The best of these projects have been selected to take part in Nordea’s Accelerator programme, which kicks off later on in the autumn in Stockholm and Helsinki.

The startups enrolled so far are: Asteria (Sweden), Lenovium (Sweden), Kuan (UK), Taviq (Finland), Tikkr (Sweden), Mina Tjänster (Sweden), Trayce (Denmark), Voxo (Sweden), Collectly (US), YeyNey (Norway), Smartcalling (UK) and Zash (Sweden).

“We had a great selection week in Oslo last week and I’m really impressed with the startups’ ideas, engagement and talent. We were especially looking for ideas within emerging technologies like cognitive computing, artificial intelligence, financial usage of blockchain and creative ideas for life and pensions solutions, and I’m happy to say that we got good ideas within all those areas”, Jan Sirich, Head of Experimentation & Learning at Nordea, said.

As in the first programme, Nestholma is Nordea’s facilitation partner. IT giants Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and IBM will also be present throughout the programme, along with other fintech experts. 

Nordea Startup Accelerator is a 3-month programme providing selected startups with the opportunity to develop their ideas alongside Nordea and some of the best fintech experts in the Nordics. The idea is to learn together and find new business and partnership opportunities through collaboration and ultimately provide better digital services for Nordea’s customers.
