Investing in Innovation: AICPA/CPA.com 2021 Startup Accelerators
The Association (unified voice of AICPA & CIMA) and CPA.com launched a shark-tank style startup accelerator four years ago with a focus on FinTech and EdTech solutions. The startup is designed to promote innovation in the accounting profession and give the Association and CPA.com more visibility into disruptive trends from emerging technologies. Finalists get a nominal funding investment and, over the course of the year, guidance on marketplace needs from a panel of experts in finance, accounting and innovation.
The accelerator is important in its own right – it gives us, for example, better insight into the path of disruptive technologies that impact accounting. But it also fits into a broader effort we’ve been at the forefront of for the past decade or more – building an innovation ecosystem, a technological rising tide that lifts all boats.
