By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com

The Partnership for New York City Fund and Accenture (NYSE:CAN) announced the search for top financial technology innovators who will work with global financial institutions to bring their ideas to market in the nation’s financial capital.

“Technology innovation is one of the most important levers of change in the financial industry: it can deepen customer relationships, reduce risks and costs, and create new opportunity,” said Bob Gach, global managing director of Accenture’s Capital Markets practice. “Accenture is delighted to continue in its third year co-sponsoring and running this important program. We are proud of the Lab’s success in helping New York City develop its financial technology ecosystem and of the strong value it delivers to supporting institutions.”

Winning companies will be part of the FinTech Innovation Lab, a 12-week program that helps early- and growth-stage financial technology innovators accelerate product development and gain exposure to top-level financial industry executives. Applications are available at www.fintechinnovationlab.comand are due by December 19, 2012.

The FinTech Innovation Lab is entering its third year of operation. Since 2010, it has provided a dozen technology entrepreneurs with mentoring and access to more than 30 leading bank CEOs, CTOs, CIOs, venture capitalists and technology luminaries. The six companies in last year’s program deployed 20 proofs-of-concept at participating financial institutions.
