Finastra launches Hack to the Future

• Calling next generation of developers to accelerate open innovation in fintech on

• Microsoft, ING, Texas Capital Bank and more, onboard to collaborate in fintech hackathon

London, UK - November 20, 2019, Finastra is inviting developers to step forward and build the next wave of innovative apps in its global fintech hackathon. Hack to the Future blends virtual hacking around the globe with in-person ‘City Hack’ locations, bringing together hundreds of students, data scientists, developers, and fintechs, to collaborate, innovate and build.

Eli Rosner, Chief Product and Technology Officer at Finastra said, “This is a momentous occasion for our platform for open innovation and our growing API set. We truly believe that the future of finance is open and now we’re able to embody that in what we hope will be our largest fintech hackathon yet. With developers hacking around the clock, around the world, using APIs connected to our core systems, we’re sparking innovation and paving the way for some potentially amazing apps to be created. This is the future of finance!”

Between now and December 5, 2019, teams of up to five people are invited to register to build apps, integrating at least one Finastra API, across the following areas:

• Retail Banking
• Corporate Banking
• Capital Markets
• Payments

With the chance to scoop a trip to Atlanta* to compete for the ultimate title at the FusionONE USA DevCon in February 2020, judges will be looking for the standout apps, critiqued on technology innovation, prototype execution, and potential business value. They will also have an eye on the extent to which the app makes a positive impact on communities, with a bonus prize for the app which best embodies ‘banking for a better future’.

In the true spirit of open, Hack to the Future is delivered alongside Finastra’s global technology partner, Microsoft.

The City Hacks include a range of localhost partners, spanning countries such as the US, Tunisia, Morocco, France, India and the Philippines, with more to be announced. Finastra customer, Texas Capital Bank will host in America. ING, and partner Cognizant will host in The Netherlands.
