Builders, hackers and reinventors interested in shaping the future of financial technologies - Rejoice!

Founders is hosting an evening of fintech speeches and networking (Friday night). Next day, we’ll host a full day hackathon based on some of the ideas that are going to sparkle up on the Friday night.

Our aim is to bring together developers and designers interested in developing a new breed of financial products. What will the future look like? We are on the cusp of big changes in the financial industry and we super are interested in hearing / seeing your vision for both consumer and business applications.

Example applications might include: innovations in risk management, trading, big data, retail banking, regulatory compliance, investing, social finance, crowdfunding, mobile payments and bitcoin.

Members of the Founders core team will participate in the hackathon and we are excited to meet anyone who is interested in moving this field forward.

Special goodie: during the hackathon, we’ll be able to utilise a few exclusive APIs and platforms from our financial technology partners.
