Venture capital fund Rokk3r Fuel ExO has announced a strategic venture capital partnership with the Canada-based Holt Fintech Accelerator Program, the company said.

The Holt Fintech Accelerator Program is based in Montreal and extends the entrepreneurship legacy of Sir Herbert Holt, Quebec's energy pioneer, who created one of the largest privately owned utility firms in the world.

The partnership will enable Rokk3r Fuel ExO, which targets startups with exponential models in the segments of fintech, property tech, artificial intelligence/machine learning and IoT, to gain exclusive access to deal flow, with the Holt Fintech Accelerator Program serving as a pipeline to emerging tech and world-class talent in fintech.

Rokk3r Fuel ExO has developed a disciplined process that taps the diverse genius of its founders to identify concepts and ideas that address humanity's grand challenges, exhibit exponential growth characteristics, and offer the potential to create value for entrepreneurs, institutions, and individual investors.

The Holt Accelerator is currently engaged in a global search for the next 400 rising stars in fintech to take part in the program, and it encourages all interested candidates to submit their applications through the Holt Accelerator website by July 29th for a chance to participate.

Rokk3r Fuel ExO invests in exponential technologies on an international level, working with founders through a tested co-building strategy to help the next generation of innovators access the resources needed to grow.

The Holt-Dunn family is the direct legacy of Sir Herbert Holt, and one of Montreal's finest. Their ancestor immigrated to Canada in 1873 and built the Montreal Light, Heat & Power company, which would later be expropriated and is now known as Hydro-Quebec. Business people at heart, members of the family founded or owned over 300 companies locally and internationally. At one time, the family possessed assets accounting for about three billion dollars (equivalent to forty billion dollars in today's currency).
