RBS Fintackathon, Tel Aviv
Tuesday, 15 November 2016 at 18:00 - Thursday, 17 November 2016 at 19:00 (IST)
Come and experience an event of a lifetime at the RBS Fintackathon! RBS is excited to announce the first ever event of its kind in Tel Aviv, in partnership with Google Cloud Platform, Intel, and The Floor. Spend 48 intense hours collaborating in a team of coders, designers, entrepreneurs and business people to create a working prototype to showcase. Come with a cool idea and watch it come to life within a short span of time.
The brief is to deliver innovative solutions around themes of financial services to enable ‘open banking’. Open banking is the vision that banks are transforming from relatively closed IT structures to structures that are more ‘open’, connected and better able to communicate with each other. This will lead to improved levels of service by enriching the banks capability with a whole range of targeted niche solutions in addition to broader personal financial management capability.

Come and pitch your idea to the crowd to invite team members. Or join a team whose idea you want to work on. Spend the two days building a working prototype and a solid pitch to support it. Finally, present to senior business leaders in Banking and Technology to stand a chance to win super cool prizes.
There will be on-ground support. Engineers will help you with technical queries and mentors will guide you towards the perfect pitch. RBS’s banking API sandbox ‘BlueBank’ will also be available for you to integrate with and test what your app can do with real world bank data.
