BEITEN BURKHARDT Advised ACCELERATOR FRANKFURT GMBH on the launch of its first acceleration program

Frankfurt am Main, 22 September 2016 - The international law firm BEITEN BURKHARDT advised ACCELERATOR FRANKFURT GMBH, Germany's first accelerator dedicated to the Fintech industry only, on the set up of its first acceleration program.

"The program would not be possible without the help of our strategic partner BEITEN BURKHARDT, providing us and later the startups with the required cutting-edge legal advice to navigate the challenging corporate and regulatory environment", says Ram Shoham, founder of ACCELERATOR FRANKFURT GMBH at the launch event on 20 September 2016. Christof Aha, corporate partner at BEITEN BURKHARDT's Frankfurt office, adds: "We are really proud to be part of this striking venture which is unprecedented in Frankfurt's finance community."

The program is made up of the following eight startups from Israel and Germany: Alyne (RegTech), Bee Eye (DataAnalytics), Cindicis (DataAnalytics), Fenror7 (CyberSecurity), Pronteo (eSharing), SchnellSpesen (eAccounting), SecuredTouch (CyberSecurity) and Wroomer (eFinancingBroker).

"The selected startups have fully committed teams and the ability to execute their business models. Each startup brings great benefits to the existing offerings in the market", highlights the accelerator's co-founder, Maria Pennanen.

Accelerator Frankfurt is an independent accelerator that gets startups investment-ready by finding cooperation partners, customers and investors. The startups have access to coaching, mentoring, co-working space, meeting rooms and services provided by its partners. The program will end on the DEMO-day mid-January 2017.

BEITEN BURKHARDT: Partners Dr. Christof Aha (Corporate), Andreas Lober (IP/IT), Gesine von der Groeben (Corporate) and Dr. Rudolf Mikus (Tax).
