Program

Join the F10 Scaleup Program!

We help you accelerate your business by connecting you with relevant players in Switzerland, execute pilot projects with our Corporate Members, and raise capital from our investor network.

It’s a 3-month accelerator program for a cohort of 10 post-revenue FinTech companies with a B2B or B2B2C model. The core of the program contains three bootcamps on-site in Zurich, where you will meet the F10 ecosystem and corporates interested in working with you. During the bootcamps, F10 will facilitate pilot workshops and masterclasses focusing on sales, fundraising, and scaling your organization.
