The fintech hackathon, brought to you by Finastra
Be a part of what we hope is the world's largest fintech hackathon ever! Build your app with Finastra APIs to enter to win great prizes, and free travel to join us at FusionONE devCon in Atlanta USA in February 2020 for the grand final.
Fintech is one of the hottest growth and innovation areas, with some serious investment from banks/private equity/VC and government.
Finastra is the third largest fintech in the world, with 9,000+ financial institutions as clients. We have recently 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.
We truly believe that the future of finance is OPEN, and this hackathon embraces open. Students, fintech enthusiasts, fintechs, tech developers, tech founders - all are welcome!
Thank you to our hackathon collaborators: our global technology partner, Microsoft; our City Hack hosts, ING, Cognizant, Texas Capital Bank, Efficiency MC + Raven Consulting, Dauphine Tunis - and more!
