FinTech Hackathon – The Kind Matcher–bridging up NGOs and Corporation Doners
The rise of fintech innovation has drawn the attention of enterprises and organizations which crave for CSR strategies, brand authenticity and customer-centricity. Fintech is opening up new ideas to establish stronger bonds of trust and loyalty with target audience and customers, in a tech-innovative manner.
IFTA 亞洲金融科技師學會, Lions Club of Hong Kong IFC and Microsoft HK are jointly organising “The Kind Matcher–bridging up NGOs and Corporation Doners”, a hackathon event with FinTech. The event will serve as a creativity-to-reality platform to bring together like-minded youths to develop product prototypes, and exchange ideas with IT industry experts.
The event focuses on equipping students with Fintech knowledge and digital skills of AI and data to develop solutions for CSR. Skills workshops and Fintech seminars will be conducted to provide basic knowledge to students and they are required to complete a self-learning pathway of digital skills on the internet before the hackathon. Winning Teams can earn job shadowing and internship opportunities with Fintech companies and mentoring hours from Fintech experts to further develop their solutions.
