Six early-stage fintech companies are gearing up for the opportunity to connect with advisors and investors through the Center for Accelerating Financial Equity (CAFE) first-ever ten-week Fintech Accelerator Program.

The program, developed by Castell, Delaware Technology Park CEO Mike Bowman, and other CAFE advisors, aims to support early- to growth stage businesses focused on enhancing financial health for underrepresented communities. The curriculum will focus on thematic topics each week, connecting founders with experts in the field, with a demo day showcase scheduled for May 30 in the Fintech Innovation Hub at UD’s campus in Newark.
