Lagos FinTech Hackcelerator Hosted by Riby Finance
Are you ready to change the world of finance? Then bring your talent and creativity to the first-ever Fintech Hackathon in Lagos organized by Lagos Fintech Week. We are inviting all Developers, Designers, Entrepreneurs and Innovation Enthusiasts who are working in or studying Finance, Insurance, Tech, Strategy or Innovation to Hackathons in Lagos.
To revolutionize the way financial services are delivered by fostering innovation, collaborating and leveraging new technology.
It is a marathon of innovation, creativity, designing and intense work. You are required to build innovative solutions from the scratch in two days. You would pitch your creative works to a panel of judges to assess and name the team who is the winner (by the way, if you really want to impress our judges, show them a working prototype).
The Lagos FinTech Week is governed by rules and intellectual property right. Kindly read the rules here > Hackathon rules
What to expect
This is a great opportunity for you to be coached by industry experts, meet new people, learn new skills, maybe even meet an investor to kick start a new idea and take on challenges at the cutting edge of FinTech in Nigeria.
You can either sign up as a team or we will put teams together. Our recommendation, build an interdisciplinary team. But this is not a must. Nevertheless, if you do not have a team but you have a good idea or you just want to participate with your skillset? No problems. Dive right in. Be part of a great event. We will set you up with a team.
We will provide you with the right mentors to guide and help to develop your solution! Tap into our network of experts in the industry and we will create something awesome together.
Get up to Speed
Our experts will provide crash courses in rapid product development and prototyping to bring you up to speed. You will have all the tools you need to kick-start your own Fintech Start-up
APIs & Data
We will provide you with the APIs and data you need. This will enable you and your team to gain the support of our experts and build a working prototype during the hackathon. A prototype that you can show to potential customers and learn from their feedbacks and most importantly: a prototype you can show to our panel.
Who are we expecting at the Hackathon?
High-impact innovations are always the result of motivated, multidisciplinary teams, which is why among all applicants we will carefully choose at most 60 participants. We are expecting active, knowledgeable and forward-thinking individuals and teams who realize that the only constant in business life are changes and improvements.
