SC Ventures Fintech Bridge

A Bridge to connect startups to Standard Chartered and our clients

SC Ventures Fintech Bridge

The corporate world can be a complicated to navigate. We understand how frustrating it can be for fintech startups to find the right people and take your solution forward. Similarly, it’s difficult for us, as a bank to find the right solutions for our specific problems. That’s why we’ve created a bridge to link  our business units to startups and the rest of the ecosystem.

We are continuously looking for new opportunities to collaborate and partner up across our footprint. If you are a startup, we are calling you pitch your solutions or ask for investment. If you are a community builder, you can recommend startups for collaboration. Either way, you will be directed to the right people inside the Bank
