Ten companies nationwide were recently announced for the Venture Center FinTech Accelerator program: Alpharank, Alto IRA, Bond.ai, Hedge Hog, HTC Mobile Apps, Omnetrium, Quotanda, eGiftify, WalletFi and Xplanr. Last year, PFITR and LumoXchange relocated to Little Rock upon completing the program.
Founders were awarded $50,000 and are eligible for a $100,000 to $300,000 investment opportunity.
“In two and a half years, companies raised $19 million in funding, creating 286 Arkansas jobs – we’re just getting started,” said Jennifer Thompson, Venture Center director of marketing and communications. “We hope to generate a contagious energy within the startup community.”
