RISE London


Barclays Accelerator

Access a constant flow of industry experts, mentors and potential clients to give your FinTech the best chance of success

Our London accelerator provides a unique opportunity to get your hands on the best advice, support and tools to build your FinTech business. For 13 intensive weeks, our successful candidates work alongside each other to develop their solutions, culminating in the Barclays Accelerator Demo Day, where our companies pitch to top-tier investors from around the globe.

Unique to Barclays, the chosen few work full-time at Rise London, Europe's largest workspace dedicated to FinTech. You automatically get to be part of Rise's global community, gaining access to our variety of FinTech workshops and events, and Barclays Eagle Labs' makers lab where you can even build prototypes of your product.
