Techstars Hub71 Accelerator Grand Finale

What a journey it has been over the past several months. Dapio (Formerly Paymob) joined the Techstars Hub71 accelerator programme back in January 2021, selected as one of ten startups out of thousands of entrants to the programme. Both a humbling and exciting experience from day one.

We’re so proud of everything our incredible Dapio team has accomplished over the past three months, working with dozens of industry leading mentors from all around the globe, pushing us towards the finish line.

On April 7th Dapio took part in the Hub 71 Demo Day, our grand finale as part of the accelerator programme, where our co-founder and CEO Kosta Du finally took the virtual stage to show off our revolutionary new frontline payment technology, our ‘Tap-to-Phone’ payment acceptance app. Providing business owners the ease and accessibility to accept credit card and e-wallet contactless payments, on the move, anywhere in the world. Using their own android smartphone and without the need of an external POS device.

The Techstars accelerator programme was an exhilarating but rigorous 90 days, helping to catapult Dapio into a new category of fin-tech. The programme provided us the framework, mentorship and platform to scale our business and nurture this new form of payment acceptance technology that we ourselves have had in development since 2018.

If you didn’t manage to catch our live pitch, you can find out more about how we are pioneering frontline payments in our pitch video here (skip to 2:01:46 for the Dapio pitch).

Maintaining our momentum, we will be taking part in our second pitch event of the month, the Global Online Pitch Session by TechShake, in collaboration with Techstars. On the 22nd April at 9AM – 10:30AM BST – Click here to register for a ticket.
