Barclays partners with Rainmaking to drive FinTech innovation

Barclays, a British universal bank, has announced that Rainmaking, a leading corporate venture builder, has been chosen as an innovation partner. With the support of Rainmaking, Barclays will launch a new suite of initiatives targeted at fintech founders across the globe, from early-stage to scale-up and beyond, to help grow and develop their companies.

The first to launch is the Rise Start-Up Academy, a virtual digital skills-building accelerator targeted to idea- and early-stage fintech founders. Applications are already open for founders addressing emerging fintech trends including wealth equality, climate, the future of money, and more. At a later date, Rise Growth Academy will be launched to provide capability development around key areas such as investment readiness, recruitment, accelerating sales, and leadership development. 

This partnership will support Barclays in its ambition to transform banking for the customers and clients it serves. 

Mariquit Corcoran, Group Chief Innovation Officer, Barclays, said, “We understand first-hand the power of collaboration to evolve and unlock opportunities for our customers, clients, colleagues and the communities in which we operate. We are very excited to work with Rainmaking to further push the boundaries of corporate innovation and ensure collaboration is at the heart of our fintech strategy.”
