Event Details

Calling all developers and future FinTech entrepreneurs on March 16th -18th, 2018!

This Hackathon aims to offer all start-ups, students, tech enthusiasts and creative minds in the FinTech industry, the opportunity to develop innovative software solutions that will help people and businesses prosper. The winning team will receive £10,000 and there is a range of other prizes to reward creative ideas!

Masterclass sessions with skilled mentors will help you build, design and pitch your idea to our panel of experts who will share their wisdom on how to take your prototype to the next level.

Come with an idea, and form a team or join a team on-site and spend the weekend building amazing solutions based on 4 core challenge tracks:

  1. Santander care: When ‘life happens’, Santander is there for you

How could Santander help vulnerable people better manage their money at key life moments?

  1. Santander everywhere: “No App is the Future App!”

How will customers interact with Santander services via their favorite App, Service, Hardware, AI or yet to be discovered App?

  1. Santander secure: Security everywhere

How can we reassure Santander customers that their money and data is secure whichever channel they use?

  1. MyScore and MyHome: Take back control of your creditworthiness.

How could Santander help both identify and support UK tenants looking to make the jump to home ownership?


Food and drinks will be provided, including refreshments and coffee throughout the weekend. If you have any dietary requirements or questions about the event, please email contact@openbankproject.com
