Core10 is thrilled to announce that our product, Accrue by Core10, has been selected by the Independent Community Bankers of America’s (ICBA) fourth annual ThinkTECH Accelerator, in partnership with The Venture Center.
In October, we announced that we acquired Accrue Technologies, Inc., an OEM Salesforce Platform provider with a powerful, configurable lending and banking application designed specifically for community banks.
We knew it then, and we certainly know it now. Accrue is a game-changing product that helps banks in achieving their digital transformation goals quickly and efficiently. We, however, recognize the value of iterating and growing. We believe in this so much that one of our Core Values is: “We’re Here to Grow”. Being selected for the ICBA’s ThinkTECH Accelerator, among hundreds of other applicants, is a true testament to our growth mindset, and we could not be more thankful for this incredible opportunity.
What is the Accelerator?
The fourth annual ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator, in partnership with The Venture Center, is a program that fosters fintech-community bank collaboration through a rigorous 16-week program featuring a four-week incubator and a 12-week accelerator. This year’s program will provide a hybrid of on-site and virtual collaboration opportunities.
What does this mean for Core10?
When hearing the news, Core10’s Chief Product Officer and Accrue Founder, Chris Sommers, said, "We are incredibly honored to have been selected for the ICBA's ThinkTECH Accelerator. Nowhere else could we get the opportunity to present and glean insights from such a distinguished group of community bank leaders, industry experts, and key policymakers. Accrue by Core10 will exit this Accelerator as a much-improved product, with a message and go-to-market strategy that will position us well to prosper and help community banks thrive in the marketplace."
At a high level, the Accelerator presents us the opportunity to pitch to and receive feedback from community bank leaders. Additionally, this will open us up to a collaborative sandbox with ten other innovative FinTech companies that are all focused on serving the needs of community banks.
Our Shared Vision
We’re committed to helping unleash community banking potential. To be selected by the ICBA who shares our vision and harnesses an environment where community banks flourish is wonderful news. We look forward to this invaluable venture ahead and the future of community banking!
