The Wells Fargo Startup Accelerator is a hands-on program designed to advance startups that create solutions for enterprise customers — inside and outside the financial industry. The intensive program helps companies understand what it takes to become part of the corporate stack.

After the program, companies may continue to work with Wells Fargo on proof of concepts across different business lines within the company.

Once selected, they will collaborate with you on the working strategy between your company and Wells Fargo and, if applicable, assist in the execution of proof-of-concept projects.

Wells Fargo accepts applications twice each year. The review process includes technical and executive reviews. Wells Fargo typically emails applicants first-stage review results within one month after the application period ends.


They are looking for startups with ideas that improve business processes, customer relationships, and infrastructure. This includes:

  • Companies involved in analytics, big data, artificial intelligence, mobile, cybersecurity, payments, blockchain, robotics, digital marketing, Internet of Things (IoT), authentication, wearables, and operations, among others.
  • Companies with demonstrable products, backed by experience and implementation that envision a large enterprise as the ultimate customer.

Nationality Eligible: All nationalities
