Alior Bank S.A. – Poland

In 2018, Alior Bank started a comprehensive accelerator program, RBL_START, to identify innovative banking startups that could provide solutions to the bank’s real business challenges. Eight companies were accepted to the first 15-week program, during which participants received support from experienced mentors, both from the bank and from highly regarded program partners. As a result of the program, the chosen startups have been qualified to work on pilot projects of their solutions. Program activities were aimed at providing startups with necessary knowledge and enabling verification of their concepts in practice. RBL_START has already opened a recruitment process for the second edition, this time seeking for startups which offer solutions in the areas of security, data analysis and client loyalty, among others.
