ETIQ.AI – Say goodbye to unintended bias in AI systems

You can access and use the Etiq.AI library as you build your hackathon POC.


You can access it here (works best with Chrome). From teams looking for a structured way to uncover unmet customer needs to those wanting a framework to craft their value proposition and concepts, the Design Thinking approach helps ensure the solutions you're setting out to build are rooted in actual human needs, are commercially viable and technically feasible. We've created this toolkit to help you as you develop your ideas. 

You can use it to: 

  • Build a better understanding of your target users and their needs
  • Define the problem statement you want to tackle
  • Rapidly brainstorm ideas 
  • Conceptualise the solution and its value proposition
  • Get to know your teammates better and be effective as a team

We've created the toolkit as a shared Mural board so you can collaborate remotely. It's a single step process to access the board and you won't need to register. If you'd like to use any of the templates with your team on a private board, let us know and we'll set one up for you. Our design and innovation mentors are also available to you if you'd like a facilitated session for your teams.


To get you started prototyping faster, you can use the Finastra Design System open source assets.

Check the Finastra Design System website to learn how to get started.

You can access directly the Figma design kit containing sample financial apps and all the UI components you need to get your rough sketches into high-fidelity prototypes. The only prerequisite is to create a free Figma account so that you are able to duplicate, share and collaborate in Chrome your app prototype.

If you are an Adobe XD user, you can also access additional resources here:


You can start hacking using a sample corporate banking app. Source code is on GitHub:
