ScratchWorks — a fintech accelerator founded by six leading RIAs — launched its third annual program intended to help innovative startup and emerging fintech firms find funding.
The ScratchWorks website is now open for submissions for emerging and startup fintech companies to pitch their business models, products and platforms for potential investment from the six investors who started the accelerator, it said Tuesday.
Those ScratchWorks investors are Marty Bicknell, CEO of Mariner Wealth Advisors; Dick Burridge, CEO of RMB Capital; John Eadie, CEO of Covenant; Jon Jones, CEO of Brighton Jones; Michael Nathanson, CEO of The Colony Group; and Shannon Eusey, CEO of Beacon Pointe Advisors. Collectively, these six RIAs manage over $70 billion in assets for high-net-worth clients.
The fintech firms selected to compete this time will get to make their pitches at the Barron’s Top Independent Advisor Summit, March 18-20, in Louisville, Kentucky.
