11 Local Startups Admitted to 1st Cohort of MassChallenge FinTech Program

December 26, 2018

After putting out a call for applications in May, MassChallenge announced on Monday the 21 startups that will join the first 2019 MassChallenge FinTech program.

From six months starting in January, startups will work 1:1 with one or more program partners including MassMutual, Putnam Investments, Fidelity Investments and FinTech Sandbox. At the end of the program, MassChallenge FinTech will award a total of $250,000 in cash prizes, all at zero cost and for zero equity.

As a honorary finalist, the list included also TellusLabs—a Boston-based satellite imagery and machine learning company building a living map of the world’s food supply, now part of Indigo Agriculture. The acquisition was announced the week before MassChallenge released its list of winners.
