Kred Enters Barclays Accelerator Powered by Techstars 2019


Kred is proud to announce its entry into the Barclays Accelerator, powered by Techstars hosted in beautiful Tel Aviv Israel. Us, along with nine different startups from all over the world, were hand-picked by Barclays and Techstars to participate in this year’s Tel Aviv cohort. This new chapter of taking part in a leading FinTech Accelerator with Barclays and Techstars will surely be one not to miss.

For those who don’t know, who we are, Kred is an all in one banking and accounting software solution that empowers small privately owned banks in India to adopt new age technology and throw out their current “pen and paper”, old school methods of bookkeeping. Through its SaaS business model, Kred seeks to expand financial inclusion of underprivileged individuals by providing digital channels — mobile, online and conversational banking — to each privately owned bank (“MFIs”) that focus on low-income and underserved customers.

Upon landing we have been fortunate to have the whole Barclays and Techstars teams welcome us with open arms and help us ease our way both the culture of Tel Aviv and getting us straight to work toward our company goals for the accelerator which include; focusing on creating relationships with banks, fundraising, and sales & pricing strategies.

The first week has been more amazing than we could have ever imagined. This past week, we met all the other amazing companies here, began strategizing a marketing campaign, and even got the opportunity to have a chat with the founders of Techstars, David Cohen and David Brown as well as senior Leaders from Barclays.

Next week begins Mentor Madness where we will have one-on-one sessions with the program 100’s of mentors from around the world, with all different backgrounds, in order to find a great fit to work with throughout the remainder of the program.

-- Stay Tuned.
