We are super proud to let you know that out of several hundred companies that applied we made it through selection to be one of 10 startups from around the world lucky enough to join Barclays Techstars in Tel Aviv. Israel, the Startup Nation, is fast becoming the FinTech capital of the world and enjoys a higher than usual startup success rate.

We are still focusing initially on the UK market and our vision is to bring tranquility to taxes. Techstars offers an incredible mentor network and access to Barclays UK’s huge retail banking experience. Over the next three months our team will be split between Tel Aviv and London as we continue to build out our tax automation solution.

Hot on the heels of the amazing Accenture Fintech Innovation Lab we landed in Tel Aviv on Saturday. Here’s myself, Kevin and Richard just after we arrived at our Techstars workspace:
