Welcome to the Fintech Hub
Your essential starting point to build, grow and scale.
From bold ideas to thriving startups, we provide the foundation for ambitious Canadian fintech leaders to build, grow and scale their solutions.
Whether you’re a first time founder, or an experienced entrepreneur, we are here to help you form a foundation of knowledge and build a network of peers and industry leaders that will get you where you want to go.
At Fintech Cadence, we recognize that not every entrepreneur starts out on the same footing. If you have a good idea and the desire to change financial services for the better, you deserve the support to make that dream a reality.
How the Hub can help you
The Fintech Hub is a long-term no-fee no-equity program for pre-series A startups with bold ideas.
Once enrolled, you get services that include access to optional monthly workshops and office hours from our program partners, service providers, peer-to-peer learning, lunch & learns with successful Canadian startups, and free software credits. Choose which opportunities fit your goals, and remember our Hub Lead is there to help you make the most of what the Hub has to offer.
We're looking for startups who:
- validated the problem you’re trying to solve.
- have at least 1 full-time person working on your technology-based solution that’s innovating and changing financial services.
- are operating in Canada.
- Have not passed Series A funding or over $10 Million in ARR.
