THE CHALLENGE(S)


The challenge will be announced closer to the event. If you would like to sponsor and set the challenge get in touch: sponsor@fintechweek.com

Previous challenges have included Blockchain in Goverment, Leverage Blockchain to End Hunger, Improve International Payments and several others. Our hackathons usually bring out a great mix of developers and mentors. Previous projects have gone on to become startups in their own right.


We've been running this hackathon series for 5 years. Previous sponsors have included, Lloyds Banking Group, Thomson Reuters, IBM, Bank of Papua New Guinea and ABT Associates.

We had over 500 registrations for our London hackathon in January. Previous winning ideas including IDbox and GovBlocks have been piloted by sponsors and have become startups in their own right. 

Once again, we're at Cocoon Networks in Moorgate. It should be a great experience as usual. 

Get Involved:

The winning teams will receive £1000 cash and present their concepts to the audience at the 6th Annual London Fintech Week to a room of 500-700 delegates.
