Hogan Lovells launches Regulatory Accelerator for FinTech startups
Legal firm Hogan Lovells is launching a Regulatory Accelerator to help UK FinTech startups to understand and navigate the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) regulatory regime.
Top accelerator CEOs (Tumml/Highway1/RockHealth) on mission, strategy&what they look for in founders
Tumml, Highway1, and RockHealth are three of the leading startup accelerators/incubators in the country, each focusing on different verticals: urban problems, hardware, and healthcare, respectively. At LAUNCH Festival 2015 Tumml CEO Clara Brenner, Highway1 CEO Brady Forrest, and RockHealth CEO Halle Tecco all joined Jason for a fascinating panel discussion on their mission, strategy, industry trends, and the funding landscape. Among the many topics discussed: what it takes to be accepted into their accelerators, diversity in tech, is incubator-hopping good or bad?, the dangers of attending a predatory accelerator, why RockHealth is actually a seed fund, whether companies really need prototypes, having domain expertise versus fresh eyes, thoughts on co-investing with large venture capital firms like Andreessen Horowitz — and much more.
