Keyrock and Tenity Reveal Web3 and Fintech Firms Taking Part in new Accelerator Programme in Belgium

Digital asset market maker, Keyrock, has selected eight Web3 and fintech startups for the first edition of its acceleration programme in partnership with Tenity, a global accelerator and incubator for fintech firms.

The first edition of the new Keyrock Accelerator Programme will start on 5 September 2023 in Belgium, concluding with a demo day event in December 2023. From nearly 200 applications from 36 countries, Keyrock and Tenity evaluated and selected eight final startups from five European countries to form the first cohort.

The new programme provides an open environment for Keyrock and the selected startups to work closely together, support and learn from each other, and identify potential opportunities for collaboration.

Kevin de Patoul, CEO and co-founder of Keyrock, commented: “We are profoundly grateful to have received applications from almost 200 innovative startups, spanning various sectors from around the globe.

“The process of narrowing this remarkable pool to the final eight was both challenging and inspiring. The selected projects are particularly resonant with Keyrock’s vision and have the potential to play an essential role in the tokenised economy.”

The programme offers the startups the chance to compete for up to €100,000 of investment during Demo Day in December and the winners will be announced at the programme graduation ceremony.

The start-ups who made it to Keyrock and Tenity’s inaugural accelerator programme in Belgium are:

  1. Brickken, which simplifies the creation, selling, and management of tokenised digital assets.
  2. CryptoTechFin, which aims to simplify tech-driven investment in crypto, while making it more accessible to retail investors and wealth managers.
  3. fija Finance, making earning interest with cryptocurrencies compliant, accessible, and transparent.

Marc Hauser, head of Tenity Switzerland, said: “Partnering with Keyrock for this groundbreaking accelerator programme has been a testament to our shared commitment to fostering the next generation of fintech innovation.

“From the diverse pool of applications to the rigorous selection process, our joint vision is to create an ecosystem where these startups not only thrive but reshape the future of Web3 and fintech on a global scale.”

The programme is set to last four months, with four separate “masterclass” weeks in person at Keyrock’s Brussels headquarters. During those weeks, startups will gain access to the Keyrock leadership and tech teams to pitch their solutions; sessions to identify potential collaborations; deep dives into tech development; user experience; and best practices, as well as sessions on fundraising and scaling their companies.

During the four months of the programme, all startups will receive custom collaboration-based mentorship from the Tenity and Keyrock networks. In addition, all the start-ups will have access to Keyrock and Tenity’s global partner network which includes global strategic partners UBS and SIX Group.
