About the program


  • Fountain City Fintech is one of very few accelerators uniquely focused on technology-driven innovation in the financial services industry that solves problems or fuels opportunities for everyday people.
  • Launched as a joint venture between nbkc bank and LaunchKC, Fountain City Fintech will offer companies the capital, mentorship and access to a forward-thinking bank partner, plus a curriculum of invaluable content from the nation’s top subject matter experts. Upon exiting the 75-day program, companies will have established a partnership with nbkc and gained the knowledge, capital and confidence to scale their post-product business with a vast supporting network of mentors and partners.
  • The inaugural class begins October 1, 2018 at nbkc’s headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri. Five companies from around the globe will be accepted into the program and share a state-of-the-art space at nbkc with access to all the company’s amenities (which consistently garners ‘Best Places to Work’ awards) in an environment designed for collaboration and creativity. Additionally, companies accepted will receive a sizable investment by nbkc.
  • The program is led by Zach Pettet, who leads fintech partnerships and investments for nbkc bank.

Kansas City? Seriously?

We know what you’re thinking. Maybe read some recent press, here:

Kansas City Seeing Jump in Venture Capital - Huffington Post

“A recent Mattermark report showed that in the first three months of 2016, Kansas City has boosted total raised capital by 297 percent when compared to the same time period in 2015. This rate increase represents the third-largest growth in the United States among the 27 major metro areas studied.”
