Intrum arranges second hackathon for financial well-being
For the second year in a row, Intrum arranges a hackathon to promote innovations for financial well-being among European consumers. The hackathon will take place in Madrid on April 3-4, 2019.
The two day-event will have participants from universities, institutions, start-ups and SMEs. The objective is to identify innovation gaps within the field of personal finance and financial education, and to develop solutions to these challenges.
- Intrum is Europe’s largest company within credit management services. This gives us the opportunity and responsibility to set new standards and introduce innovations to our industry. With this hackathon, we encourage everyone who wants to contribute to a sound economy through data to join us for two days filled with creativity and a solutions-driven atmosphere, said Louise Karlander, Digital Product Manager Intrum.
Intrum and its partners will provide data and mentorship throughout the hackathon as support. The initial brief will be provided by top speakers from the industry, sharing insights into trends and tendencies within the personal finance field.
Each team will pitch their final solution to the panel of fintech, customer experience and behavioural science experts. There will be awards for the top 3 solutions and the winning team will have the opportunity to develop its solution together with Intrum.
Intrumhack 2019 will be arranged together with several partner companies, whereof Banco Sabadell, one of Spain’s largest bank, will be the key partner.
- We strongly believe that the integration of third party products and services will provide new tools in the bank’s platform to enable clients and users to manage their finances more efficiently and achieve financial well-being. All the teams involved will have the opportunity to design innovative solutions that will allow clients to operate within the new competitive and regulatory framework known as “OpenBanking”, mentions Alfonso Ayuso, Chief Innovation Officer of Banco Sabadell.
