Thomson Reuters announced its partnership with FinTech accelerator SuperCharger to bring technology and market data access to FinTech firms undergoing its Hong Kong based program.
The SuperCharger is the first FinTech accelerator program to be strategically located in Hong Kong which is dedicated to both startups and more established global FinTech companies aiming to capture the Asian growth market.

The Supercharger program has now commenced its third phase – a 12-week, structured curriculum designed to create success. The accelerator will assist with company building, mentorship and advice in areas such as market entry, regulatory obligations and joint venture opportunities. A ‘demo day’ will take place on 7 April 2016.

Amareos was created on a simple observation that today there is simply too much information available. It is impossible to process and analyze manually everything that is said on a topic. However, technology has reached a point where it is now possible to scour information on the web constantly. Amareos converts the volume and variety of millions of news and social media streams into manageable information flows that drive sharper decisions. Amareos is a proud winner of one of the eight available Acceleration spots of the SuperCharger.
