CSI Kick Start, Inc., a FinTech startup incubator founded by leading global payments innovator CSI globalVCard, today announced that its second annual application process for FinTech startup funding is now open.

Aspiring entrepreneurs seeking to radically transform key areas of B2B payments including virtual cards, FX, ACH, checks or security concerns may apply online. CSI Kick Start will be offering portfolio companies investments starting at $500,000, mentorship from an advisory board of industry experts, cross-selling opportunities and a host of additional resources.

The CSI Kick Start model is unique in the world of venture capital funding. The company not only looks for innovative new solutions but also provides access to resources and expertise in all areas of business development including technology and overall guidance from a network of successful entrepreneurs and advisors.

Since CSI Kick Start first launched a year ago, all three of its funded startups have achieved significant success. Companies benefitting from CSI’s resources and mentorship include:
• Yoke Payments is transforming the self-checkout and inventory management process and was awarded the Best POS Innovation by leading payments influencer PYMNTS.com earlier this year.
• Delicious Nutritious Markets has installed its health-conscious markets in 75 business locations in 15 states since partnering with CSI.
• Front Runner Films now has a full production crew and an impressive portfolio of award-winning corporate videos.
• Spend Secure LLC makes controlling your mobile payments, travel expenses and accounts payable easy.

“We are extremely proud of these young entrepreneurs and their business growth,” said Keith Stone, President and CEO, CSI Kick Start. “Much of this success can be attributed to their passion, dedication and willingness to learn from our experiences and the advice we share. We genuinely care about their long-term success, which is what really sets our investment model apart from most other venture capital funding models.”

FinTech startups can apply with ideas and business models that show the potential for disruptive innovation.
