We are extremely excited to announce the launch of Fintech For Inclusion, a programme that aims to advance financial inclusion in LatAm and the UK by creating synergies between both regions. The programme is co-organized by Shaping Horizons, UNDP Argentina, UNDP Accelerator Labs CoLabAr, UN Volunteers ROLAC and Global Shapers Buenos Aires, with the support of our partners UNDP Mexico and Ashoka Argentina.

The programme will focus on four #Fintech categories: Loans, Savings, Payment Methods and Financial Education, and the methodology of the programme consists of three stages: (1) a digital pre-incubation stage where approximately 400 selected participants will be assigned into teams; (2) an ideation stage that consists of a summit to take place in Buenos Aires in 2021, to which around 7-8 teams will be invited to participate; (3) a digital accelerator phase where teams will be eligible for non-equity financing to implement their Fintech initiatives, developed in the previous stage. Up to £25,000 will be distributed among the best team/s to cover for training activities, with expenses covered, at the University of Cambridge. At this stage, Shaping Horizons will also facilitate scalability and provide tools for measuring social impact.
