figo has done it again: For the fifth time, the Hamburg-based FinTech company has put on the banking and FinTech hackathon. Venue: Berlin. Wear and tear? Nowhere to be seen! The fact that the Bankathon is established as a neutral platform in the financial sector, bringing together the most – and we mean the most – diverse players in the industry, particularly shines in this fifth edition. Banks, industry associations, payment providers, initiatives, credit bureaus, company builders, consultancies and cloud providers were among the sponsors and supporters. 20 teams from different nations addressed the topic “PSD2 & … ?!”. In the end, their prototypes had to be found within the topics of Health, Identity, Insurance, SME or Travel.
