Event description

Description

Come and experience an event of a lifetime at the RBS #BankOfAPIs Hackathon! 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.

Themes & Challenges?

The brief is to deliver innovative solutions around themes of financial services to enable ‘open banking’. 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.

Specific areas that we are interested in for this event are Every Day Banking, Short Term Lending, Home Buying and Ownership

Let’s get started!

Come and pitch your idea to the crowd to invite team members. Or join a team whose idea you want to work on. Spend 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.

Happy to support you!

There will be on-ground support. Engineers will help you with technical queries and mentors will guide you towards the perfect pitch. RBS’s Hackathon API sandbox ‘BlueBank’ will also be available for you to integrate with and test what your app can do with real world bank data.

In the end, a great couple of days will be had with food, drinks, ideas, and all the works. The only requirement is to come with a lot of bright ideas and enthusiasm!
