Eight FinTech and InsurTech startups have just embarked on an innovation accelerator programme run by L’Atelier BNP Paribas. Each startup will be working for four months in tandem with one of the BNP Paribas Group’s businesses to develop co-innovations that will open up new business opportunities and help create new products and services for the Bank’s customers.
Over the next four months, the eight selected tech startups will be working on an Open Innovation programme with the aim of meeting specific needs expressed by various BNP Paribas businesses in a number of fields including inter alia insurance, payment methods, customer experience, cybersecurity, risk analysis and compliance.
Each of these promising young companies is pairing up with one of the Group’s businesses or service departments and will receive coaching in such areas as IT, marketing, business practice and fund-raising from the L’Atelier BNP Paribas Lab team, plus mentoring from entrepreneurs and financial industry experts. The startups will be hosted at the BNP Paribas We Are Innovation (WAI) space in Paris, which will provide them with a high-quality working environment.
