In this digital age, designing the future of banking is more important than ever. As more and more people are using digital banks for performing day-to-day financial operations, there is a growing need for robust and innovative financial solutions.
To tackle this, students from the LTS Level One and Level Up programs came together at the House of Startups from 30th June to 2nd July with a goal of conceptualizing and creating the next generation of innovative digital banking solutions.
After one day of hacking the students got the opportunity to meet with experienced mentors from the finance, technology, and business industries who help them to crystallise and finalise their ideas.
On the final day, the students presented their ideas to an esteemed panel of jury, composed of Emilie Allaert, Head of Luxembourg Blockchain Lab, Anna Sobków, Senior Programme Manager at the Luxembourg House of Financial Technology, Jeronimo Azevedo, Chief Enterprise Architect at Post Luxembourg, Andrey Martovoy, Innovation and Digital Adviser at Fondation ABBL, who evaluated the projects based on their innovation, implementation, and presentation.
After intensive discussion the jury announced the four winners:
- 1st Place: DivideX – Collective payment solution
- 2nd Place: Money Mentor – Empowering young people to learn about finance
- 3rd Place: Investor League – Stockmarket livestreaming by banks & SIMoney – Easy mobile payments via SMS
The LTS FinTech Hackathon has demonstrated that our young generation is ready to tackle challenges, positioning them as not just the consumers of tomorrow, but also the creators and digital leaders of the future.
This special hackathon was sponsored by Fondation ABBL pour l’éducation Financière and supported by the Luxembourg House of Financial Technologies.
