What you can expect
This year #SIXHackathon will be run simultaneously at Schiffbau in Zurich and RainmakingLoft in London in collaboration with RainmakingInnovation. We offer a virtual exchange between the two FinTech hubs in Europe, fun, challenging questions, exciting data sets, interaction with the FinTech community and networking opportunities with specialists from SIX who are also taking part.
What you have to do
SIX will provide you with data and APIs (interface information) from the FinTech scene. You will work in small teams. The aim is to present an expert jury with a prototype or a concept after 48 hours. You can either select a topic freely or take inspiration from one of the workshops on offer. You will be competing against around 120 participants.
Who is eligible to take part
In principle, any person over the age of 18 with an interest in FinTech is eligible to take part. Participants must have an affinity with and relevant skill-set in the areas of software development, graphic or interface design, banking and finance, marketing, project management or similar. You will travel to Zurich or London independently.
What’s in for you
You will have the opportunity to prove your skills using real-life problems and present your ideas to an expert jury. We also offer an exciting, virtual exchange between two or Europe’s FinTech hotspots, London and Zurich. We provide you with the inputs and information on the local FinTech scene and its representatives.
