Charlotte, NC – Queen City Fintech is excited to introduce Class 9 to the Charlotte community! This year’s fall cohort will be participating in the Charlotte-based fintech accelerator from September 4th and will conclude on November 14th with the Southeast Fintech Venture Conference.
“The quality of the applicant pool for class 9 of Queen City Fintech is the highest we’ve seen to date!” says Dan Roselli, Managing Director of Queen City Fintech. “We reached out to over 500 Fintech startups from across the world and the Class 9 companies reflect that increased breadth and competitive selection process.” This year, Queen City Fintech received over 100 applications representing 35 states and 20 countries.
As the Queen City Fintech accelerator matures, we are thrilled to see some of our alumni returning to North Carolina. Invoira, a B2B network streamlining invoice management from Class 8, will be relocating their operations to Charlotte from New York City this month.
Queen City Fintech’s expansive sponsor network represents the long-term commitment to promoting innovation here in the Southeast. “Being rooted in the heart of Charlotte, the team at AvidXchange is passionate about fostering a community that provides opportunities to emerging, innovative leaders,” says Red Maxwell, Senior Vice President of Growth Innovation & Strategy at AvidXchange. “For this reason, AvidXchange is thrilled to be part of the Queen City Fintech program, which is designed to inspire a new wave of regional and international entrepreneurs. We hope that AvidXchange’s own Fintech journey can be a touchstone that will inspire this 9th class of creative and bold thinkers.”
