The accelerator hub, known as the Fintech Accelerator at Stevens Institute of Technology, is the first location on the East Coast for Plug and Play, a Silicon Valley-based firm. The program will host two cohorts a year, with at least 10 companies per cohort, and will focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
