CHARLOTTE — RevTech Labs, the Charlotte-based entrepreneurship center, today announced participation in their fall program. There are 15 startups representing the financial and insurance industries included in this, their 19th cohort. The RevTech Lab Foundation also has a VC arm, RTL Capital, which often helps fund startups in the accelerator.

This will be a hybrid program, allowing the participation of startups from around the world. More than 85% of this cohort have Traditionally Underrepresented Founders (TURF). RevTech Labs was co-founded by Sara Garces Roselli, herself one of the few majority-Latina owners of Fintech Venture Funds in the country.

The RevTech Lab Accelerator was recently ranked among the top global Fintech accelerators by Finovate. That achievement has really put a spotlight on the program, according to RevTechLabs Co-Founder Dan Roselli. The group started the process with connections from more than 8,000 companies from around the world.

“This was the most competitive selection process in RevTechLabs & QCFintech history with an application-to-acceptance ratio similar to Harvard’s in the low single digits,” Roselli said in the press release.

The program kicks off with a Welcome Party at Tabbris, a Charlotte coworking space, on Tuesday, August 29th.
