Are you ready to change the world of finance? Through simplification, unexpected visualizations or new combinations of data? 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. 

You'll get a crash course in rapid prototyping by Apparat and APIs from several of our cluster members! 

*Technical skills are not a requirement!

The goal? To contribute in revolutionizing 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!

Mentorship: We will provide you with the right mentors to guide and help to develop your solution! Tap into our network of experts in the industry and we’ll create something awesome together.

Get up to speed: Our experts will provide crash courses in rapid product development and prototyping to bring everybody up to speed – and experts speedier. 

APIs and data: We will provide you with the APIs and data you need. This will enable your team, with support from our experts, to build a working prototype during the hackathon. A prototype that you can show to potential customers and learn from their feedback. And most importantly: A prototype you can show to our jury!
