MassChallenge FinTech

Launched in 2018, MassChallenge FinTech accelerates outcomes-driven partnerships between startups and enterprises to fuel innovation. MCFT firmly believes that startups and incumbents can accomplish more together than they can alone, and we’re dedicated to transforming financial services through our results-focused, collaborative model.
