Being a Judge at Cambridge’s Fintech Weekend – Great students supported by innovative Accelerator Program

On the 23rd Nov 2015 I was invited as a Judge to the Cambridge Business School Accelerator which organized it’s first FINTECH start-up weekend from 21-23 November 2014.

This three-day intensive event brought together finance and innovation entrepreneurs who wanted to address challenges in tomorrow’s banking. Participants had 54 hours to test their idea, build a team and pitch to a panel of judges. It was a great event and I was very impressed by both the students knowledge and enthusiasm for the fintech sector and the supportive environment by the Accelerator.

Enabling meaningful venture creation out of Cambridge

Accelerate Cambridge is a start-up “accelerator” established by Cambridge Judge Business School in May 2012. The School is situated in the centre of Cambridge, at the heart of the University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Cluster, the city’s academic and business networks, both of which have a long tradition of entrepreneurship.
