How can innovators engage with the R2A and its partner financial authorities?

R2A is keen to hear from fintech and RegTech developers, startups, and vendors as we partner with emerging market financial authorities (e.g., central banks) to collaboratively strengthen their market oversight and policy development capabilities. Specifically, innovators can pitch us their RegTech ideas, prototypes, or existing solutions. Submissions are encouraged from startups, entrepreneurs, developers, established vendors, and anyone else who has a relevant early-stage business, prototype, or solution. Please contact for more information.

In the future, R2A will share information about country-level engagement opportunities with specific financial authorities. We also will enable innovators to register in a RegTech for Regulators vendor database. Stay tuned and visit this website.

Why should innovators engage with R2A?

There are many potential benefits for innovators who engage with the RegTech for Regulators Accelerator, including:

  1. Business Opportunities
    • Develop or deepen relationships with the community of emerging market financial authorities.
    • Receive a monetary award to develop and test a RegTech prototype with a partner financial authority.

  2. Participate in summits or interactive sessions to (i) understand the needs of emerging market financial authorities and (ii) explore innovative solutions.

Who can participate in the market-level competition to receive funds to develop and test RegTech prototypes with R2A partner financial authorities?
