AlphaPack’s Sandbox product and the importance of demo days
FinTech Sandbox current resident AlphaPack recently spoke with Breaking Banks’ Brett King on the weighty challenge of bringing FinTech innovation to large financial institutions, and the value of participation in Startupbootcamp FinTech’s accelerator and Demo Day.
Brett King hosts the world’s first FinTech podcast Breaking Banks, highlighting technologies and dialogues surrounding disruption in the banking industry. In this segment, Bett chats with AlphaPack Co-Founders Ravi Balasubramanian and Skye Isard on their Sandbox software integration platform, and navigating the diverse financial services ecosystem. Since acceptance into FinTech Sandbox’s data access program for startups in April of 2015, AlphaPack has developed a product to address financial institutions’ challenge of jumping into the innovation scene without compromising data security or worrying about legacy system integration. AlphaPack’s Sandbox is a platform for institutions to test and “play with” different products, bypassing initial vendor compliance or integration concerns by running software in an isolated environment on the cloud or on premise.
As Ravi and Skype express, AlphaPack’s participation in Startupbootcamp FinTech was pivotal in guiding their development and understanding of the FI landscape. Ravi pitched AlphaPack’s product to a crowd of finance investors, mentors, professionals and startups at Startupbootcamp FinTech Demo Day in July. Demo Days like this one provide a critical opportunity for startups to collide with the FinTech ecosystem to network, glean feedback, build resources, and hone their pitch. FinTech Sandbox will be hosting our next Demo Day in November, stay tuned for more on the innovative startup’s we’ll be showcasing! Stay up-to-date here.
