BEYOND BANKING HACKATHON BY BANK AUDI

27 Nov 2018

Event description

Data scientists, finance enthusiasts, software developers, marketers, designers and business developers, come take part in the Beyond Banking Hackathon by Bank Audi and pave the way towards building the future of Lebanon’s fintech and banking sectors.

Bank Audi is looking for innovators that will dare to find, build, test, and pitch solutions for the following challenges:
- Reinvent the digital banking user experience.
- Create a personal touch in banking.
- Imagine the banking e-advisor.
- Rethink the customer’s lending, saving, and transacting journeys.

You can also choose to work on any other challenge you have in mind that is related to banking.

The 3-day hackathon is designed to provide you with superior experiential education, whether you are a technical or non-technical entrepreneur, and to create the perfect environment where you can test your ideas and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

Starting on November 27, 2018, at antwork, with brainstorming sessions, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, the hackathon will culminate on the morning of November 29 with demos and presentations. Throughout the hackathon, participants will create working startups, collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks, and receive valuable feedback from local experts.

Fill in your application form here.
The deadline to submit your application for the Beyond Banking Hackathon by Bank Audi is on November 22, 2018 at noon.

We will be assessing received applications and contacting shortlisted individuals to join us on November 27 for team formation and ideas selection. All teams will pitch to a carefully selected jury and the top team will get the chance to present its solution in front of 300+ attendees at the Summit’s main stage, and walk away with a $5,000 cash prize.
