F10 FinTech Hackathon in Singapore – Get Access to Fintech Trends and Young Talentsby Company Announcement July 23, 2018
After writing successful hackathon stories in Switzerland where valuable partnerships have started and game-changing fintech ideas have been born, it is time for F10 FinTech Incubator & Accelerator to further the revolution of the finance industry on an international level.
Singapore as the heart of the ASEAN economy with its high degree of innovation, excellent living standards, political stability, top universities and numerous headquarters of internationally significant companies is the ideal starting point to revolutionize the worldwide finance industry.
F10’s aim in organizing the 48-hour hackathon in Singapore is to bridge the gap between the Swiss and Asian fintech ecosystems and to facilitate cooperation between young talents and corporations. Switzerland – the number one in innovation and the hub for finance revolution – is represented at the hackathon with partners from the F10 network that consists of representatives from big financial institutions crucial for Switzerland’s banking and insurance industry.
It is, therefore, a unique opportunity to get access to the latest global fintech trends and meet like-minded people with a common goal: to reshape the global finance world.
The goals of F10 FinTech Incubator & Accelerator
The F10 Accelerator Programs have been designed for financial firms that want to reach the next level of innovation. F10 FinTech Incubator & Accelerator provides financial institutions access to the most promising international talents in fintech, radically new technologies, and business models.
It helps to solve cultural constraints by accessing an extremely entrepreneurial environment. The F10 programs thus ultimately reduce corporations’ risks of being disrupted by new market players and to stay ahead of the fast-paced changes in the financial industry.
At the hackathon in Singapore, F10 is looking for talents beyond national borders to boost innovation, bundle the forces, and use the synergies between the Swiss and Asian ecosystems. Curious action takers (techies, business managers, students, lateral thinkers, corporates, designers), who have a sincere interest in solving problems of the finance sector and are eager to be challenged, are invited to apply.
Participants have the opportunity to meet new talents, enhance their fintech knowledge and experiences, get insights into the financial sector’s challenges, learn about the latest fintech trends, to connect with key leaders from the industry, and maybe even find their potential partners with whom to start their own businesses in the future. The place to meet like-minded people from 21st to 23rd of September 2018 is at the modern Singapore Management University (SMU) in the heart of Singapore and the ASEAN economy.
Space is limited to 100 people. Apply now to become part of the next big thing! The application deadline is on the 15th of August, 2018, at 12:00 am, Singapore time.
