  • What is inFINity?
    inFINity is an intensive 6-week hybrid (in-person plus virtual) accelerator to empower and leapfrog early-stage FinTech startups. This is a zero-equity program where you will get access to top industry leaders who would be committed to turbo-boost your journey and see you succeed.
  • Who is encouraged to apply?
    Early-stage FinTech startups which :- Seek Seed to Series-A funding Have already developed an MVP Have raised under $5M
  • Who is an ideal candidate for inFINity?
    If you meet all three eligibility criteria and are committing your time for the duration of the accelerator, including the 3-day in-person bootcamp in Bengaluru and the virtual sessions, then you are an ideal candidate for this accelerator.
  • Is this a full-time commitment?
    inFINity 2023 consists of three main components, and to derive maximum benefit for your startup, the founders should commit to all three: Preferably all, but at least one of the co-founders would be required to be present for the in-person bootcamp in Bengaluru from 31st Aug, to 2nd Sep, 2023. Post the bootcamp, your active participation will be required for 4 weeks of virtual sessions (maximum 4 hours per week) on various technology and business mentorship sessions. The co-founders would be required to be actively present for a minimum of 80% of the virtual sessions. During the four weeks, you can avail one-on-one sessions with AWS experts, PayU and Chiratae Ventures for personalized advice on your startup’s technology stack, GTM and pitch deck. If the co-founders do not have sufficient bandwidth to commit to this schedule, then we would advise applying for the next cohort of inFINity instead when you might have better availability. The inFINity team strongly respects and appreciates the various mentors who are volunteering their time and effort towards this initiative, and we would expect the selected startups to adhere to the attendance guidelines.
