FinTech is on the rise in Canada, with new innovation and trends happening every day it is critical to our financial infrastructure for us to keep building and innovating within this ecosystem. We created the Canadian FinTech Sandbox to help bring together innovators who are building the FinTech solutions of tomorrow and data from the FI’s to help them build that solution.
During our 5-week program, we will guide startups through regulation best practices and give you access to real financial data to help you build your big idea. Along the way, we will match you with best-in-class mentors and ensure that when you leave our program, you will be ready to work with the largest financial institutions globally.
