MKB Fintechlab Hackathon

About the challenge

Build a working prototype of a key functionality of a banking API and win 25.000 EUR within 30 hours! We will provide everything (location, internet connection, refreshments). You only register your team now and bring your ideas and device(s) to work on.

The Hackathon runs between November 30 - December 2, where you can work teams of 2-4 people. During this time you can transform business ideas into prototypes within 30 hours. There is no need to completely finalize the project you are working on but it must be

more than just an idea.

On Sunday afternoon you have to present your project to a professional jury and after that, your one thing to do is enjoying the award ceremony! Register and learn more here:
