#HackingForGood

Be a part of what we hope will be the most impactful fintech hackathon ever, with #HackToTheFuture 2020! Build your app with Finastra APIs to accelerate transformation, because we're #hackingforgood! Join a global open innovation community — hacking around the clock, around the world! 

The hackathon is centered on these 3 important themes:

 

There is no better time. The world needs change, underprivileged and silenced voices need amplification. With Covid, we've all realized how important digital technology is to stay connected and accomplish goals. And technology isn't slowing down, it's time to thrive in a digital world.

Huge thank you to our hackathon collaborators, sponsors, and partners!

Fintech is one of the hottest growth and innovation areas, with some serious investment from banks/private equity/VC and government. We have a real opportunity to make a serious impact and change the course of history.  

Finastra is the third largest fintech in the world, with 8,500 financial institutions as clients. We have opened up APIs to our clients' core systems, to allow fintech app connectivity. Hack To The Future will use these APIs, to bring your new innovation to this audience and enable "tech for good."

We truly believe that the future of finance is OPEN, and this hackathon embraces open. Students, fintech enthusiasts, financial institution developers, fintechs, tech developers, tech founders - all are welcome!
