Accelerating into the new year with Accenture

Jan 18, 2019 |

The new year brings new opportunities and we’ve got a story hot off the press that we’re excited to announce. 

We’re taking part in this years Accenture Fintech Innovation Lab London

With direct access to the UK's biggest banks and partners, we’ll be working alongside 19 fellow starts ups selected for the programme based in London, Old Street. 

Over the next three months, we’re going to be working with Accenture, remarkable mentors and industry experts to refine, enhance and accelerate our Open Banking roadmap to help everyone understand what they can afford. Whether that’s investing for the future, saving for a rainy day, borrowing to fund a key life milestone or repaying debts.

With more people experiencing variable income as a result of the gig economy and zero hours contracts, consumer debt is reaching record levels and with more than 40% of the UK having less than £1000 in savings, it has never been more important for consumers to know precisely how much they can afford.

OpenWrks is on a mission to use open banking as a force for good. A mission that helps people understand what they can afford and helps product providers deliver more personalised and sustainable financial services.

We’re extremely proud and excited to be part of the Accenture Fintech Innovation Lab as the expertise and support we will receive means we can deliver our vision faster and to even more of the people who need it most.

Here’s what our Co-Founder and CEO, Olly Betts had to say about the announcement…
