FintechOS announce its affiliation to the UK Microsoft Startup Accelerator. After a complex process of enrolment and selection, in which FintechOS had to prove its unique technical solution and market potential, FintechOS becomes the first Romanian company officially registered in the Microsoft UK accelerator program for startups.
The FintechOS platform will be listed with priority in the Microsoft global marketplace, accessible to a network of more than 40,000 sales and implementation partners on Microsoft solutions. Hybrid teams in the Microsoft UK structure will provide mentorship on mission critical topics like exposure and sales channel development, as well as platform, documentation, go-to-market and support functions needed to gain traction in over 190 countries. On the commercial side, FintechOS will take advantage of tailored marketing programs and participation to high-profile events in the financial industry alongside Microsoft UK. Furthermore, FintechOS is granted with access to the latest Microsoft tools for development and productivity and with an annual credit of Azure cloud consumption worth $120,000
“I trust FintechOS will further build upon this great opportunity. First, we can provide banks and insurance companies that work with us on various streams with a mature cloud platform acknowledged at global scale. In the same time, we contribute to promoting latest Microsoft technologies in the financial industry. We expect to generate an annual Azure cloud consumption of about EUR 1 million until 2020 and an increase of 3 figures in each of the following 3 years”, said Teodor Blidăruş, CEO FintechOS.
