With a focus on financial inclusion and with the support of dozens of Latin American Banking Executives we are excited to bring the annual Fintech Hackathon to main campus for the first time in 5 years!
This interdisciplinary & experiential event is open-ended and brings together engieners, business students, designers, entrepreneurs, and more for a weekend of education, ideation, and creation. Teams of students create novel solutions to pressing needs over a weekend culminating in demos and prizes on Sunday afternoon.
This event is sponsored by Elevate Global: social entrepreneurs focused on empowering necessity entrepreneurs (micro and SME operators) via strategic partnerships with financial lending institutions in emerging markets.
