Queries? We've got you covered.
  1. What is BOLT?

    BOLT is a 26-week collaborative program for entrepreneurs and seed stage start-ups in the fintech space.

    We offer entrepreneurs with an idea for the next big FinTech solution ready access to plug into our API network across our capabilities of:

    • SEND (55+ countries via direct ACH coverage)
    • SPEND (card issuance in 32+ countries)
    • RECEIVE (30+ countries via direct ACH coverage)

    In addition to the global rails connect, BOLT also offers the opportunity for first time entrepreneurs to connect with and gain from the wisdom of a wide rolodex of Affinity Partners in the eco-system. These include government agencies, consulting firms, banks, academic institutions etc.

  2. How is BOLT different from other Innovation Labs?

    We are not just another flavour-of-the-season ‘Innovation Lab’.

    We are independent and provide a ‘no-strings-attached’ opportunity for you to build your business. Come, connect to our API stack and build beautiful products, solutions and services.

    Additionally, we take no lien on equity of your ideas or a future share of profit. Not even any IP. We are here to help you succeed. In your success lies our success.

  3. Do you provide funding?

    BOLT does not provide any funding.

    We do help connect you with our rolodex of Venture Capital partners and act as enablers through the journey.

    More importantly, we provide the one key component that most start-ups kick starting their first-time journey into the exciting world of entrepreneurship lack. Perspective on fund raising – gleaned from experience.

  4. What if my company is registered in another country?

    BOLT accepts applications only from registered companies (not individuals).

    We are location agnostic and your company could be registered anywhere in the world. Our APIs are open for connect from anywhere in the world.

    However, the best use-case of partnering with BOLT is to co-locate key team members in the R&D Hub we have set up in the heart of CBD, Singapore.

    This is because we believe that a vibrant the eco system allows opportunities to make serendipitous connections across a wide number of participants in the network and profit from perspective
