QC Fintech's Scalerator is a year long program focused on helping later-stage financial technology startups through mentorship and a heavy focus on sales and growth. This program's focus is on helping transition Founders to CEOs.
Accepted companies receive an upfront capital infusion of at least $40,000 per company with the potential for follow on funding for the top performers in the program.
This program is primarily remote, as we recognize with later-stage companies it's increasingly difficult to uproot your location or spend significant periods of time away from your team.
QC Fintech selects fintech companies with technology or customer acquisition models strategically aligned with our banking partners. As such we maintain a 'wide tent' definition of fintech. Here are some segments of the broader fintech sector we find particularly interesting:
Cybersecurity・Regulation and Compliance Tech・Payments Tech・Specialty Lending・Capital Markets Tech・Blockchain Applications to Banking Processes・Cryptocurrency・Banking SaaS/PaaS Solutions・Digital Identity・B2B2C Financial Tools・Insurtech・Big Data Analytics, Machine Learning, and AI
QC Fintech's Scalerate program utilizes innovative programming to help Founders build key relationships, gain fresh insights and exceed sales metrics necessary to hit that pivotal growth stage, moving our Scalerate Founders to CEOS.
QCF matches you with 10-12 subject matter experts to discuss your overall strategy, new product development, and other ideas you have for the growth of your business. You will meet with these advisors 4 times during the 12 weeks for extended periods of time each.
QCF has the most robust mentor network out there with over 500 mentors that are high-level decision makers, even C-suite executives, at Fortune 500 companies. With our mentor matching system, we place you with professionals with the exact subject matter expertise you need to take your business to the next level.
QCF's proprietary alpha testing platform. Twice per year, we match founders with alpha users in their target market to provide feedback and share ideas based on their user experience testing the founder's platform for 4-6 weeks. This program is ideal for startups with either a B2C or B2B2C business model.
QCF's proprietary pilot testing program. We match founders with companies that will either provide POC or customer discovery feedback or, if the startup is far along enough, will fully pilot their solution. This program is ideal for startups with either a B2B or B2B2C business model.
Not only do we help our Scalerate Founders build their footprint in the Southeast, but we work with partners across the nation to help our Founders gain exposure and garner financial interest.
This program is primarily remote, however we ask our Scalerate Founders to commit to our roadshow dates.
