The accounting and finance profession of the future will look very different than it does today. We’re already having to adapt to changes related to regulatory compliance, task automation, AI, blockchain, and more.
The AICPA and CPA.com Startup Accelerator helps grow startups throughout the accounting ecosystem so the innovators and cutting-edge solutions can help transform the profession. Our aim is to strengthen the ability of individual accountants and finance teams to be the go-to analysts, strategists and consultants that are indispensable to organizations across the globe.
We’re focused on three specific themes, both of which ultimately help the profession perform and add value at a higher level.
ACCOUNTECH — Tools and platforms that improve efficiencies for accounting and finance professionals as well as advanced technologies that enable firms to shift their focus to value-added advisory services.
REGTECH — Technologies that facilitate the delivery of regulatory requirements and help businesses meet the challenges of regulatory monitoring, reporting, compliance, risk management and fraud detection.
ESG — Solutions that enable the accounting & finance professional to support, audit and advise on Environmental, Social and Governance initiatives. A growing category that provides an evaluation of a firm’s collective conscientiousness as it relates to environmental and social factors.
Selected startups will be offered a $25,000 grant.
