Are you ready to change the world of finance? Then come bring your talent and get creative at Finance Innovation’s first-ever Fintech Hackathon!

We are calling all developers, designers, entrepreneurs and innovation enthusiasts working within or studying finance, insurance, tech, strategy or innovation to hackathons in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim.

The goal? To revolutionize the way financial services are delivered by fostering innovation, collaborating and leveraging new technology.

A hackathon is a marathon of innovation, creativity, designing and intense work to build innovative solutions from scratch within two days. The hackathon will culminate with pitching to a panel of judges who will name the winner team (by the way, if you really want to impress our judges, show them a working prototype!)

What to expect: This is a great opportunity to be coached by industry experts, meet new people, learn new skills, maybe even meet a co-founder to kick start your own idea and take on challenges at the cutting edge of fintech.

Collaboration: You can either sign up as a team, or we will put teams together. We recommend creating an interdisciplinary team, but it’s not a must. You don’t have a team, but you have a good idea, or you just want to participate with your skillset? No problem, join the event and we’ll set you up with a team!

GREAT PRIZES for the best ideas! 1st place: Accelerator – Fast-track for consideration to our accelerator program Slush conf. – Experience the world’s leading startup event (in Helsinki!) Office space – At Jonsvoll, Sparebanken Vest’s headquarter in Bergen

Mentor time – Pick mentors of your choice from our mentor network
Pitching/Presentations: Wednesday at 1pm - all teams will pitch their work for all of us, and to the judges.

Food and drinks - on the house!

Hackathon dates: Bergen: 2.5 – 3.5 Oslo: 30.5 – 31.5 Trondheim: 28.8 – 29.8
