Legal experts will touch on regulations and investors will shed light on financing and access to venture capital. The event will be fully in English and is open to anyone interested in the field of digital finance. The participants in the hackathon will get a chance to solve real-life Fintech cases, propose and develop new Fintech solutions, and test their ideas with ‘dummy data’ via Iris PSD 2 HUB.

All Fintech ideas created and developed during the Fintech hackathon will be evaluated and the best will be awarded prizes which will enable them to go fast on the market. During the evaluation process on the last day of the event - 14th March, we will have a 3-hour conference in which speakers will be physically present in a studio, from which we will live stream.
