As #fintech startups drive innovation in the finance sector, the banking industry looks to catch up as demand for digital services increases

International banking group BNP Paribas, in partnership with startup accelerator Plug and Play, is searching for the brightest minds to develop innovative banking solutions. From June 9 to 11, the bank will host 36-hour hackathons across Berlin, Brussels, Istanbul, Luxembourg, Nanjing, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Singapore, and Warsaw, open to startups with various fields of expertise. The Singapore hackathon is looking for startups focused on AI chatbots, natural language processing, data aggregation, and analytics. The hackathon will culminate in a pitching event where startups will demonstrate and present their solutions to fintech experts. The winners will get an opportunity to engage in a 5-month co-working phase with BNP Paribas and S$10,000 prize money. At the end of the co-working phase, selected startups will go on a final pitch event in Paris. The final winning team will be announced in December 2017 and will win a cash prize of 10,000 euros.
