BCT-Bank of Charles Town Announces Anchor Investment in BankTech Ventures Fund
BCT is excited to embrace banking innovations through its involvement in the recently launched banktech-focused venture capital fund

BCT-Bank of Charles Town, also known as The Community’s Bank, announced that it has committed to be an early investor in BankTech Ventures, LP (“BTV” or the “Fund”), a newly launched venture capital fund with the mission to support community banks through investment and education around banking technology. With general partners from The Venture Center, the Independent Community Bankers of America (“ICBA”), Hovde Group and two leading community banks, Coastal Community Bank and Sunwest Bank, BankTech Ventures looks to partner with premier community banks to identify emerging technologies for investment and use by them.

Supported and endorsed by the ICBA and The Venture Center, which was named Finovate’s 2020 Best Accelerator of the Year, BankTech Ventures is building an ecosystem that pairs community banks with emerging technology companies that can serve banks’ immediate needs whether it be regulatory, customer acquisition, process improvement, or other areas of focus. The Fund ultimately aims to provide its bank investors with the opportunity to obtain significant research & development “spend” at a much lower cost than if undertaken in-house, as well as strong returns from the underlying company investments. With a limited partner base expected to reach over 150 community banks across the US, the strategic value of the fund’s ecosystem for both bank-focused startups and community banks is unprecedented.
