About Us

The RegTech Accelerator was founded by Matt Elton, one of the world’s leading RegTech strategists. He has worked with some of the largest companies in the UK, Europe, and Canada, as well as assisting smaller companies to grow and achieve their ambitious growth aspirations.

In recent years, Matt has become well known in the RegTech industry, having co-founded the International RegTech Association in 2017, and the Canadian Regulatory Technology Association in 2018. Matt often speaks at public and private events around the world. Matt is focused on actively leading the transformation of regulatory compliance: lowering costs, increasing margin, increasing profitability, turning a cost centre into a revenue centre.

After several years of working with the RegTech industry, Matt observed that in spite of RegTech firms producing highly innovative, cutting-edge solutions, the uptake of RegTech solutions by regulated firms was not happening as quickly as many had predicted, despite many attempts to stimulate the industry by regulators, industry associations and commentators.  

In 2020 Matt decided to create the RegTech Accelerator to provide practical assistance to RegTech firms to grow their business, positioning their products and services to gain more rapid market traction.

Matt has assembled a team of experts located throughout to help drive growth in RegTech firms. Together they have a deep subject matter knowledge in brand building and awareness, market analysis, go-to-market strategy, commercial and pricing strategies, sales process development, internationalization, and business growth strategies.
