Note from the Publisher: We are encouraged to see fintech accelerators throughout the US in markets large and small. I will say we don’t often source fintech-related news from “ArkansasOnline”, but in fact the following piece highlights how Bill Clinton’s home state is working to recruit fintechs from other markets via their 12 week FinTech Accelerator program.
“A New York startup believes that its software system will help small Arkansas banks and others nationwide meet growing regulatory requirements at lower costs.
The company, Hexanika, is one of 10 firms involved in a Little Rock financial technology accelerator program. Hexanika also has offices in Pune, India.
The 10 startup companies, which include two international firms and eight firms with headquarters from New York to North Little Rock, are participants in a 12-week program collaborating with Little Rock’s Venture Center and FIS Global.
The FinTech Accelerator gives the companies access to some of the top executives at Fidelity National Information Services Inc., better known as FIS Global, which has 1,300 employees in Little Rock and more than 55,000 worldwide.”
