ScratchWorks is a FinTech accelerator that connects innovative tech companies with investment and wealth management luminaries to advance the digital transformation of the financial services industry. We’re inviting early-stage FinTech companies to make their pitch to five investors, representing five different wealth management and investment firms that collectively manage over $60B in assets.

The ScratchWorks investors are a group of five leaders from top wealth management and investment firms around the country that collectively manage over $60B in assets. Together, they form a think-tank that meets regularly to discuss industry trends and foster innovation. They are personally committed—and financially invested—in discovering and growing ideas and technologies that can elevate their industry.

The Process


Check back for applications for the 2019 competition. Entries will be screened, and the top three finalists will be invited to pitch.


Selected candidates will make their pitch to our investors during a live event attended by hundreds of leaders from across the wealth management industry.


Successful pitches may receive investment offers on the spot, as well as additional support and networking opportunities.
