LET'S MAKE OPEN BANKING BLOSSOM

To celebrate the beginning of Open Banking in Europe and the PSD2 directive operational start-date (14 September 2019), Finqware will host the first Open Banking dedicated Hackathon in CEE, using financial multibanking data access in sandbox mode.

The participating hackathon teams will have access to Finqware’s single API solution to connect to banking sandboxes for access to account information, payment initiation and financial product distribution.

The challenge will engage teams to ideate and implement products, use cases and applications on top of financial data availability.
