Joining fintech fusion accelerator
This week, we joined Fintech Fusion, a fintech accelerator in Geneva whose mission is "to build the future of the financial industry". I'll describe here what will happen in the upcoming months and what I expect from the program.
Since the beginning of EZYcount, we've had some customers in Geneva. This is our chance to push EZYcount in this Swiss region.
During the upcoming two months, I will be more or less two days per week in Geneva and working from fintech fusion.
I divide the days into two types: first the "improve days" and then the "network days".
Improve days are days where we, all the selected startups and supporting coaches, focus on one aspect of our businesses. It could be the go-to-market strategy, review of the investor's presentation or pricing strategy. The days help us to focus on a specific part of our business and review it in-depth.
Coaches and Fintech Fusion members challenge our assumptions and models. The target of each of these days is to review and improve the specific points of our businesses.
I expect these days to make EZYcount business model stronger and help us find out if some points of our model need improvement so we can grow faster and more efficiently.
Fintech Fusion target is also to connect us, startups, with their network of consultant, investors, successful entrepreneurs and large corporations. By participating at these network days, I have the opportunity to directly talk to these people and potentially meet a large investor or discuss directly with an influential corporate manager to strike the beginning of a collaboration.
I expect these days to increase EZYcount network quickly in size and quality.
After fintech fusion
After these two months, the fintech fusion team will continue to support us in our growth and progress by opening doors and looking for opportunities within their network. Half of the program is the "investor track" who helps us create better investor presentations and strike more and better deals. This should support our current ICO and help reach the hard cap.
I've only been there a day but sitting next to other very promising startups from all around Europe, which is building the next generation of financial services is extremely motivating. Some of us go through the same challenges, thus we can learn from each other. Moreover, the fusion team is very supportive and was able to put my expectations from the program very high!
I'll keep you updated about our fintech fusion journey every three to four weeks.
Have a great week!
Vivien, CEO EZYcount
