T-Hub, a tech start-up incubator, and HSBC have selected five start-ups for its maiden Accelerator 2030. Launched in March, the accelerator is aimed at partnering with fintech start-ups that are working on products and solutions to enhance banking operations.

Out of the 95 fintech start-ups that applied for the programme, Abda Digital, Tookitaki Technologies, Capital Quant Solutions, vPhrase Analytics Solutions and have been selected for the eight-week programme.

A cohort of five selected start-ups will get access to training, mentorship and workshops to be conducted by senior HSBC leaders during the programme. “They potentially have the opportunity to see their solutions be applied to HSBC’s global operations,” a T-Hub statement said.

“Abda Digital’s Hola Enterprise is a SaaS (software-as-a-service) platform for creating interactive micro-ads. It provides an innovative way for user engagement and lead generation,” it said. Tookitaki’s artificial intelligence solution improves operational efficiency, making the process actionable, auditable and scalable. Similarly, vPhrase too uses AI solutin to help the clients summarise the data into bullet points, highlighting the key insights required for decision-making.

The jury that selected the five start-ups comprised experts from T-Hub, HSBC and the industry on the basis of their technology, products and solutions, go-to market readiness and scalability.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance.
