Aspiring startup founders can apply online through the site for a chance to nab an investment, starting at $500,000, along with mentorship from industry experts, a pile of resources, and plenty of networking opportunities.

According to the incubator, their model is unique to venture capital funding:

For the more discerning FinTech entrepreneurs among us, here's a list of past successes that the incubator has given their eponymous kick start to:

Yoke Payments is transforming the self-checkout and inventory management process and was awarded the Best POS Innovation by leading payments influencer earlier this year. Delicious Nutritious Markets has installed its health-conscious markets in 75 business locations in 15 states since partnering with CSI. Front Runner Films now has a full production crew and an impressive portfolio of award-winning corporate videos. Spend Secure LLC makes controlling your mobile payments, travel expenses and accounts payable easy.”

Keith Stone, President and CEO at CSI Kick Start, had this to say:

“We are extremely proud of these young entrepreneurs and their business growth. Much of this success can be attributed to their passion, dedication and willingness to learn from our experiences and the advice we share.”
