How do bankers network

Shaping the future of service-oriented banking with innovative ideas, solutions and apps - that is the aim of the first international UniCredit Appathon, which HypoVereinsbank (HVB) invites from November 6th to 8th. Both sides benefit from the meeting: The bankers network with the digital community and are inspired by their ideas, while creative minds have the opportunity to actively participate in the banking of the future. The members of the FinTech and app developer scene, the "coders", have 24 hours the opportunity to simultaneously turn digital visions into project ideas and solutions for apps and wearables in Germany, Austria and Italy.

For the first time, the participants - programmers, web / UX designers, data and marketing specialists and FinTech experts, individually or in a team - can use selected technical interfaces of the bank (application programming interface, API) functionalities and bank-specific data simulate. There are three subject areas to choose from: “Wearables and Mobile Banking”, “Digital Private Banking” and “Premium Service”.
HVB has awarded prize money totaling € 18,000 for the best ideas. There are also special awards from partners and sponsors.
