Ten start-ups have been short-listed by T-Hub for the fintech accelerator programme that was launched in November in partnership with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) and Department of Science and Technology (DST).

The programme is designed to enhance faster product development and scale-up the short-listed start-ups. It will be offered in virtual mode due to the current COVID-19 situation, T-Hub said on Friday.

Some additional benefits include benefit from Go-to-Market support during the acceleration phase, and opportunity to showcase their solution to industry experts and the ecosystem during the Fintech Accelerator Demo Day scheduled in July.

T-Hub CEO Ravi Narayan said, “India’s digital payment landscape has grown steadily over the years. Owing to the current pandemic, there has been a fundamental slowdown of transactions at all levels. But all that will fundamentally change. We consider this an opportunity. not only to support these deserving start-ups...”
