Akouba's Chris Rentner will be spending several weeks this summer with FIS executives, as part of their accelerator program which gives selected companies access to seed capital, mentors, and industry contracts. The program kicked off with a keynote from FIS Global's CEO, Gary Norcross, as well as an introduction to former President Bill Clinton.
"We are most excited about Leveraging our collaboration with FIS -- a global, $9B financial technology services juggernaut. It will be a huge competitive advantage to us." says Rentner. Akouba was accepted into the program along with 10 other companies from several cities around the United States and at least three foreign countries.
The program will conclude with an investor demo day at the Clinton Presidential Center on Wednesday August 3, 2016.
