Given the success of the FinTech Startup Weekend I organized back in December, I am really excited to share that I have setup a new organization called The FinTech Hackathon that we are rolling out to the global FinTech community. I am also excited about the amazing companies we have involved: 10gen, Betterment, Bloomberg, Caplin, Dwolla, Estimize, The FinTech Innovation Lab, OpenGamma, OpenFin, OANDA and StockTwits.
The goal of the FinTech Hackathon is to promote innovation and the development of financial technology for institutional customers as well as retail consumers. Our first Hackathon will be taking place in NYC on April 6-7 at Alley NYC and will feature several APIs and platforms for participants to build on top of. The Hackathon will conclude with a demo day to a panel of judges.
Registration will be opening soon. Make sure to sign up at www.fintechack.com to keep updated. You can email me or email@example.com if you have any questions.
