“When I first joined the program I was thinking this is going to be a great way to partner with a bank and fast track integrating with them for our technology product. But what I didn’t realize is that they sent us a ton of super-valuable contacts.”

“The Falls Fintech Accelerator was brilliant the way they laid it all out. It probably would have taken us millions of dollars and probably 3-5 years (at Wellthi) to figure out independently. It prepared us to get to market really quickly.”
