FinTech benchmarking and innovation de-risking platform, TISAtech, has announced ground-breaking new partnerships with global technology leaders to bring emerging, high-growth FinTechs access to discounted and free next-generation services.
Today’s announcement sees MasterCard, Amazon Web Service, R3, and Yodlee join TISAtech’s NEBULA Development Panel. NEBULA provides FinTechs with free or low-cost access to cutting edge technologies – helping them to build and enhance their business propositions. TISAtech members will now access FinTech-focused, highly specialised and discounted support, including cloud services, developer tools, financial services, enterprise resources, investment acceleration and CRM.
Gary Bond, CEO of TISAtech said, “Having a great FinTech idea or product is no guarantee of success. The challenge is to ally innovation with business excellence and this understanding is the foundation of TISAtech’s NEBULA Development Panel. Our partnerships with some of the world’s most recognised and innovative technology providers accelerate access to tools that might normally be out of reach – to help FinTechs move to the next level.”
The NEBULA Panel integrates with TISAtech’s set of global FinTech standards, developed in partnership with The Disruption House. These standards provide 48 benchmarks against which FinTechs can measure themselves – then accessing NEBULA to drive improvements. These benchmarks span ESG to operational readiness to technological sophistication – helping innovative financial technology start-ups to improve, scale and connect with finance customers around the world.
David Vatchev, head of Blockchain Ventures at R3 says, “FinTechs have enough to do driving their innovations to the marketplace, so access to a seamless technology support platform can be the difference between success and failure. We are delighted to partner with TISAtech to provide members a free 6-month developer licence, enabling young firms to negotiate regulated markets and develop robust propositions ready to pitch to B2B clients and customers. This helps us achieve an objective R3 and TISAtech share- accelerating the market-readiness and uptake of fintech innovations.”
