Plaid said it will help entrepreneurs access capital and services through its network of VC firms, service providers and accelerators. The program will also offer networking opportunities, discounted services and ad credits. Additionally, FinRise will offer a three-day virtual boot camp that will feature workshops on a wide variety of technical, product and business topics.
“We want to unlock financial freedom for everyone by empowering entrepreneurs and innovators. We want to create a FinTech ecosystem that consists of more voices rather than fewer,” said Plaid in a statement announcing the program.
