Program Details

At Modulus, we have witnessed our clients achieve remarkable success, collectively generating billions of dollars in annual revenue.

While some of our clients are large corporations like JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, and Nasdaq, many started with nothing – no team, no capital, and no experience in financial technology.

Over the years, Modulus has worked with thousands of clients including a mix of startups, SMBs, and SMEs through our Startup Program.

The Modulus Startup Program is similar to Y Combinator™, but specifically designed for fintechs.

In exchange for a small equity stake, ranging from 1 to 10%, plus a small quarterly membership fee, you'll receive access to select Modulus products and professional services valued in the millions.

Success Guarantee

Modulus guarantees significant value. If we fail to deliver, we will refund our equity stake (unlike other incubators).

License fees for Modulus clients who do not participate in the Modulus Startup Program often exceed $500,000, and even reach as high as $1 million and more. Additionally, our professional service fees reach as high as $1,000 per hour. As a member, you won't be paying those expensive fees.

Additionally, in certain cases (based on equity), we may grant free lifetime licenses for select solutions, which may boost your company's valuation tremendously.

For example, if Modulus grants your startup a license for a solution normally sells for $1 million in exchange for a 5% equity stake, that lends credibility to giving your startup a valuation of $20 million.

Whether you're building the next payment app, launching a cryptocurrency exchange, a proprietary trading firm, retail brokerage, or other venture, our technology and expertise will accelerate your success, guaranteed!
