Sandhubs and Finboxes.

What’s the difference between a hub, sandbox, accelerator and innovation center? In our minds, the difference is getting fuzzier around the globe. But if a company, government or business association wants to promote entrepreneurial density around financial innovation and has the capital, commitment and staying power to do so, bravo — as long as the sponsors have a clear definition of success in mind and a plan to get there. As such, we wish the newest ‘sandhubs,’ including the Bahrain FinTech Bay and Ontario’s “regulatory super sandbox," great luck.
