WOMEN IN FINTECH SUMMIT
WHAT: Women in FinTech Summit
WHEN: 18 August
WHERE: Mestil Hotel
The 2023 Women in FinTech Hackathon will reach its zenith at the Women in FinTech Summit on 18th August 2023, a grand occasion where excellence will be celebrated.
The best-performing teams and standout individuals will be recognized and duly rewarded, sharing in the collective prize money of USD 10,000. But the rewards extend beyond mere financial gain; the victorious winners will automatically earn a coveted place in the Women in FinTech Incubator program, scheduled to run from September to December 2023. This is not merely a competition but a launchpad to greatness, offering not only recognition and financial rewards but a pathway to further innovation, growth, and success within the dynamic field of financial technology.
Minus awarding of the Hackathon winners, the Women in FinTech summit will also have several speakers and panel discussions all focused on issues affecting Women Financial Inclusion.
Both the Women in FinTech Hackathon and Summit are part of the broader HiPipo Women in FinTech initiative that also includes an Incubator program; all implemented by HiPipo in partnership with Level One Project, Mojaloop Foundation, INFITX, Cyberplc Academy, Crosslake Technologies and Ideation Corner and supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
