EY Selects Elsen to Participate in 2018 EY Accelerating Entrepreneurs Program

Posted in Insights

Congrats to Elsen CEO and Founder, Zac Sheffer, who was named to the 2018 EY Accelerating Entrepreneurs program. Zac is among 30 entrepreneurs from across the Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEIA selected by EY from technology fields including fintech, AI, robotics, and augmented reality to join this year’s class.

The EY Accelerating Entrepreneurs program is designed to help fast-growth startups around the world to scale business through collaborations with each other, and large corporations. Recognized as the next generation of global business leaders, this year's class was chosen based on their potential to grow across borders, solve big challenges, develop cutting-edge solutions and innovation, drive strategic direction and demonstrate leadership. With this criterion, it’s no surprise to us that Zac was hand-selected to join the 2018 class!

At 28 years old, Zac has developed an industry-changing idea and built a team – and together, we have closed funding, developed a technology platform, and inked a deal with one of the world’s largest financial institutions. Elsen is well on its way to making an impact toward modernizing an entire industry, and we couldn’t be prouder to have Zac leading the charge!

The Elsen nPlatform combines high-quality data from the most respected sources in the financial world with cloud-based architecture to deliver a blazing performance that legacy systems can’t deliver. Applications built on nPlatform can be used by anyone, empowering fundamental investors on Wall Street to compete with their tech-savvy quantitative counterparts.

As the first order of business, Zac will join the rest of his EY Accelerating Entrepreneurs class in Amsterdam in April to attend EY’s Innovation Realized 2018. There, the start-up leaders will collaborate with leading businesses on how to scale their companies and compete in a global business environment increasingly defined by industry convergence.
