We are delighted to announce that Asset Reality will be joining the first Amazon Web Services (AWS) accelerator program focused on supporting FinTech companies in the UK.

The AWS FinTech Accelerator is powered by Vestbee, a leading matchmaking platform for start-ups and investors in Central and Eastern Europe. The six-week program will aim to demonstrate the capabilities of cloud technology for start-ups in the financial services industry by providing access to mentorship, training and technical guidance.

AWS has designed this equity-free program for early-stage start-ups in the UK market that specialise in new financial technology like the blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI) and decentralised finance (De-Fi). They were inspired to launch this new initiative after realising the scope of opportunities presented by utilising cloud technology in this area having previously provided services to FinTech giants like Monzo, Starling, Coinbase and Crypto.com.

AWS has been the world’s premier cloud computing platform since being launched by Amazon in 2006. They offer hundreds of different IT infrastructure services to countless businesses around the world, allowing them to save significant amounts of money on expensive computer equipment.

Our co-founder & CEO, Aidan Larkin, is excited to have been selected for the initiative:

“We’re absolutely delighted to have been selected for the first-ever AWS FinTech Accelerator. Crypto-related frauds are on the rise, presenting a unique opportunity for private sector companies to work closely with law enforcement’s efforts to reunite victims with their stolen crypto. The support and guidance we will receive from this program will be invaluable in our mission to improve asset recovery and make crypto safer for everyone.”

Sam Edge, head of EMEA, FinTech business development, startups and venture capital at Amazon Web Services said:

“The AWS FinTech Accelerator will provide startups with access to the latest cloud technologies, free credits, business support and mentorship, while at the same time introducing them to organisations within the broader community, such as VCs, and industry partners. The UK is considered a global leader in FinTech and we see that continuing in the future, driven by innovation in emerging trends that will form the focus of the accelerator. Through the AWS FinTech Accelerator, we aim to offer support to the next generation of FinTechs on their scale-up journey as they push boundaries and drive innovation that transforms the finance industry.”


The AWS FinTech Accelerator begins tomorrow, September 12, and will last for 6 weeks, culminating in a demo day presentation on October 27th.
