Investment firm Holdun announced on Thursday the launch of its Holt Fintech Accelerator. The accelerator, which is aimed globally, will support the next generator of entrepreneur talents operating in the fintech industry. The company also reported that the project is a nod towards Sir Herbert Holt, an energy “pioneer” from Quebec, who the company claimed created one of the largest privately owned utility in the world called the Hydro-Québec.
“Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, it feels very logical to me to honour the entrepreneurial spirit that the family has been cultivating, with a focus on fintech and AI. We want to give back to the community and, thanks to this program, we’ll definitely be able to make a difference in the future for these startups.”
Holdun reported that the Holt Accelerator is currently engaged in a global search for the next 400 rising stars in fintech to take part in the program, and it encourages all interested candidates to submit their applications through the Holt Accelerator website by July 29th for a chance to participate. Holt Dunn added:
“We’re really pleased to welcome an experienced player such as Jan to the Accelerator Program. With a deep understanding of the fintech industry, he certainly is a key player in stepping up the game for fintech startups and unlocking their full potential.”
