Bangkok, January 15th, 2017 – Startupbootcamp FinTech announces its final stop of their 2017 FastTrack tour to be in Bangkok on the 7th of February at Rise Academy. The one-day event is open to innovative early-stage companies looking for expert advice, mentorship and exposure.

Startupbootcamp FinTech is a world-leading financial innovation accelerator dedicated to helping startups scale globally through direct access to an international network of mentors, partners and investors. Attracting over 700 applications over the last two programs in Singapore, they are on the road for their FastTrack tour which will see them travel to 17 locations across APAC.

Sam Hall, Program Director of Startupbootcamp FinTech Singapore said "We're phenomenally excited to be heading back to Bangkok. The early stage FinTech’s in Thailand are working on really interesting solutions for inefficiencies that blight Thailand and are suffered across Southeast Asia. There's a real appetite to change the status quo, and we have of course already seen one Thai success story - Setscope - come through our FinTech accelerator at Startupbootcamp."

Startupbootcamp is looking for top-notch startups to present their venture on the 7th of February. The select group of startups will gain the opportunity to pitch before a group of expert mentors and gain valuable 1:1 feedback on their product, business model and pitching skills. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet the Startupbootcamp global network and be placed on the watch-list for the FinTech Singapore accelerator program.

Tanin Sammanee Founder and CEO of Setscope said "Setscope's selection to participate in Startupbootcamp FinTech FastTrack changed the game for us. Unlike other pitch days, their unique one-on-one session provided chances to all FinTech startups to discuss their ideas with all the 15 - 20 mentors / potential investors. Connecting with these top executives from regional financial corporations was way beyond our expectations. From here Setscope was selected to participate in the 2016 cohort, allowing for immense exposure to the top Mentors, Financial Institutions and Investors from around the world."
