In line with our commitment to spearhead Digital Financial Services adoption and Financial Inclusion advocacy across Africa, HiPipo is implementing the 2021 #WomenInFinTech #LevelOneProject Hackathon and Summit.
The Women in FinTech Hackathon will convene developers – 75 per cent of them being women – to come up with financial inclusion solutions that address their community needs, aided by Level One Project principles and latest technologies between 8th and 14th October.
Registration for the second #WomenInFinTech #LevelOneProject Hackathon kicked off on September 21st, 2021 and will continue until October 4th after which successful teams will be announced.
The hackathon is open to women-led teams of 2 to 4 members, with each team having at-least 75 percent female composition.
The Hackathon, organized in partnership with Crosslake Technologies, Modusbox, Mojaloop and Level One Project, will culminate into the Women in FinTech summit on Friday, October 15th, 2021 where the three top teams will be announced and share USD 5,000 in prizes.
Our strategy is aimed at ensuring that women have more access to and use of digital financial services, such as mobile money wallets, mobile bank accounts and digital payment systems, to close the persistent gender gap in financial inclusion.
