FINTECH IS F^%$ing HARD...
WE'RE HERE TO HELP YOU.

THE JOURNEY...

 

Arguably the hardest aspect of entrepreneurship is the roller-coaster.
To build a venture-bankable business you can expect more voices telling you it can’t be done than those suggesting it CAN be done. We’re a community of entrepreneurs, bankers, investors, and service providers here to lend a helping hand.

WHAT STARTUPS ARE SAYING...

“Got accepted to the Yodlee Incubator with connections I made through Empire Startups”

“In enterprise, customer acquisition is incredibly hard, and in FinTech it’s even harder. I can’t thank the Empire team enough for introducing Datavore to the decision maker at its cornerstone Fortune 500 customer."

“Empire opened up networks into the NY FinTech ecosystem - and I landed a job!”

FINDING A
CO-FOUNDER

Don’t go it alone. Finding a co-founder, especially a technical co-founder, is incredibly difficult. Challenge yourself to sell the dream as if you can’t convince someone to build a company with you, you won’t convince an investor to hand you a check.

If you build it, they WON’T come. Getting your product in the hands of consumers is a massive challenge in FinTech.
