University of Leeds Hackathon

Everyone is invited to our join our 24 hour non-stop hackathon looking at the challenging and exciting area of Financial Technology in partnership with major technology leaders (HSBC, IMC, AQL and others). Join us for this event, work in a team and propose a concept, or build a prototype, or design a start-up.

Our sponsors have provided a set of topics in the areas of financial tech, digital identity, security, and personal digital assistants. Once you’ve been allocated a team, you will have 24 hours to propose a great idea for a particular topic and produce an initial prototype. You will then present your idea to a judging panel on Sunday afternoon. A winning team will be chosen for each topic area. Throughout the event you will be given mentoring and support by research staff and engineers in designing and building your concept. Mentors will also be on hand to look at your CV and give you tips on employability etc.
