• Builders of the Fintech Ecosystem

    Queen City Fintech provides fintech startups access to world class mentors, capital, and leading financial services organizations; all in the heart of global banking hub Charlotte, NC.


  • "QC Fintech has been instrumental in facilitating introductions for RegSmart. It has been our experience that the fintech community here and in the region is active, engaged and driving for meaningful innovations. Our experience with the QC Fintech accelerator and Charlotte business community has greatly sped our company development and opened our eyes to the benefits and opportunities of doing a fintech startup in Charlotte and the South. I would recommend the QC Fintech accelerator to anyone serious in the space . . ."

    "QC FinTech was a phenomenal accelerator to participate in. The access to mentors, advisors and coaches was a major benefit in helping us develop our platform and identify new relationships. We loved the space, open atmosphere and how the Charlotte community opened their arms to us so we could grow as a startup. Dan and his entire team were on top of us to keep us on track and to provide a successful outcome, which worked perfectly. If you're a company looking for the right investment to grow your company with proper guidance and insight, QC FinTech is the place to go."

    Justin Witz


    "A ‘thank you’ to the QC FinTech leadership team upon completion of Demo Day simply does not do justice to the invaluable guidance, expertise, and business contacts we have received during these past three months. Our one objective was to gain validation for the Amicus digital customer experience platform from Donor Advised Fund (DAF) sponsors, but we gained so much more. Most grateful for the opportunity to participate and for the welcome extended by all the coaches and mentors in the Charlotte business community that are the backbone of this program."

    Charlotte as a Global Hub of Fintech Innovation

    Sound crazy? We don't think so. Here's why.

  • The Program

    Queen City Fintech is a 12-week accelerator program designed to mature financial technology startups through intense mentorship from leading banking executives, business development professionals, and venture capitalists and attorneys, among others in Charlotte's robust business community. Accepted companies also receive an upfront capital infusion of at least $20,000 per company with the potential for follow on funding for the top performers in the program.


    Charlotte, NC is the second largest financial center in the US. Led by former Bank of America executive and serial entrepreneur Dan Roselli, Queen City Fintech offers access to executive level members of each of Charlotte's Fortune 500 financial services institutions. With low cost of living and some of the best quality of life in the US, there is no better city in the US to grow a fintech startup than The Queen City.
