Mazars is proud to sponsor Finastra’s Hack to the Future annual fintech hackathon open to developers from all over the world. This year the global event will be entirely virtual and will run from 15 October to 22 November 2020, with winners announced in December, following live judging.
The covid-19 pandemic has highlighted some of the world’s most challenging issues such as poverty, inequality and exclusion, intensifying the need to make things better quickly. Hack to the Future annual hackathon encourages the transformation of the financial services industry using technology and innovation to tackle these pressing challenges. For Mazars, this sponsorship is about helping redefine finance for good for all the world’s citizens – in the spirit of the firm’s purpose to help build the economic foundations of a fair and prosperous world.
Banks, fintechs, universities and other communities are invited to collaborate across three themes:
Tackle systemic inequalities: including banking the unbanked/underbanked, socially responsible investments and Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG), building inclusive technology and driving financial literacy;
Overcome COVID-19 challenges: harnessing digital technology, embedding fintech across industries, finding new growth streams and managing risk in challenging times;
Embrace technology-enabled change: including establishing ecosystems beyond finance, cross-business intelligence layers with AI, reimagining transaction flows with Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and integrating physical and digital experiences.
Mazars’ experts will be on hand to lend the hackers their expertise as well as sit on the judging panel supporting the two nomination categories: ‘Socially responsible investing’ and ‘Best environmental impact’.
#Hacktothefuture 2020 is open to developers from all over the world, and Finastra offers unprecedented access to 130+ APIs, their core banking systems and a suite of datasets.
Join us as we Hack to The Future, and hack for good.
