Agent IQ Showcases Solution at ICBA ThinkTECH Virtual Demo Day
Event follows 12-week bootcamp designed to accelerate the growth of promising fintechs
San Francisco, CA (April 6, 2021)—Agent IQ performed a demonstration of its financial technology platform during the 2021 Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) third annual ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator Demo Day. Agent IQ was selected from hundreds of applicants from around the globe competing for a place in the award-winning and globally recognized ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator, powered by The Venture Center and with support from the State of Arkansas.
The virtual event highlights ICBA’s ongoing effort to foster fintech-community bank collaborations that produce tangible, relevant solutions to help community banks achieve their business objectives and deliver an exceptional customer experience for which they are known.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the program” said CRO Soren Bested. “The ICBA ThinkTECH Accelerator has cracked the code on how to help Fintech start-ups refine their messaging and presentation. The introduction to their network of community banks and executives provided targeted lead opportunities for us as well as constructive feedback from a broad range of industry leaders and experts.”
"We selected the most promising fintech solutions in critically important areas and paired them with the best and brightest industry stakeholders to refine timely, relevant solutions that solve for community bank pain points," ICBA Senior Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer Charles Potts said. “We’re thrilled with the evolution of these offerings, which will allow our members to continue to be innovative and responsive to the shifting needs of their customers while continuing to move our industry forward.”
“This year’s cohort companies rose to the challenge of attending an all-virtual accelerator, meeting with over 100 individual banks over the course of 12 weeks,” Wayne Miller, executive director of The Venture Center said. “We are proud of the work they have done in this new format and are greatly impressed with their overall performance,” Wayne Miller, executive director of The Venture Center said. “With input from community bankers, and with a wealth of new connections, we are sure this cohort will continue to find success.”
