“We’re tremendously excited to support and work with this talented, dynamic group of innovators,” said Timothy Flacke, Executive Director of the D2D Fund. “The fact that they hail from all over the country, and range from educators to entrepreneurs to engineers, reinforces our belief that innovation in the financial capability and access field really does come from anywhere. We’re eager to see the completed apps these teams produce.”

“This marks the beginning of an ecosystem focused on leveraging innovation to improved financial capability and access to high quality products and services,” said CFSI President & CEO Jennifer Tescher. “From funders to finalist teams, we’re thrilled to see such engagement. We’re eager to see this ecosystem thrive and grow.”

Finalists will build fully functional apps by late spring, at which point they will present their apps to a panel of high-profile, expert judges at an event hosted by FinCapDev administrators, the D2D Fund and the Center for Financial Services Innovation. The $100,000 prize purse, including a $50,000 Grand Prize, will be awarded at this event.

Flacke and Tescher acknowledged the contributions of many enterprises in advancing the apps, including the teams at Betterment and GoPago, for graciously donating time and resources to insure the technical feasibility of all Finalist app proposals.

Supporting FinCapDev partners throughout the competition include the Applied Innovation Institute, Braintree, Citi, Dell Social Innovation Challenge, Deloitte, EachScape, Facebook, H&R Block, ideas42, MasterCard, Women Innovate Mobile, and Yodlee. FinCapDev is made possible thanks to the generous financial support of the Ford Foundation, the Citi Foundation, and Omidyar Network.
