1.) Does the BNY Mellon Accelerator invest in participants?
Participants in the program do not receive an investment from BNY Mellon solely for participating. However, BNY Mellon is an active strategic investor that invests in companies that are aligned with our strategic priorities to help further catalyze their development.
2.) What is the time requirement?
The amount of time required depends on the time required to create your proof of concept (POC). Each POC is expected to run 3-6 months.
3.) Do you have to go to a specific location for the Accelerator?
No, you can do everything remotely.
4.) What happens at the end of the POC?
At the conclusion of the POC, participants will receive feedback from the executive level sponsor. If the POC is successful, it can improve the opportunities for entering into a commercial relationship with BNY Mellon. Additionally, participants will receive a BNY Mellon Accelerator completion badge for use in external marketing.
