Ingressive For Good (14G) 2023 FCMB Hackathon Programme for Techies in Africa.

Over 80% of Fortune 100 companies conduct hackathons to drive innovation. I4G HACKFest 2023 will be conducting a virtual Hackathon in partnership with FCMB.

This is the right time to go beyond the four walls of the bank and leverage FCMB APIs to promote Open Banking Initiatives. It will run for over 50 hours where African techies will collaborate and virtually build proofs of concept and minimum viable products (MVPs).

The I4G Hackathon is brought to you by Ingressive For Good in partnership with FCMB. The Hackathon brings together techies across Africa including developers, engineers, students, designers, idea generators and other stakeholders in the tech space to drive sustainable innovations and build projects that address pressing real-life business problems and social issues. It will run for over 50 hours. African techies will collaborate and virtually build proofs of concept and minimum viable products (MVPs) for a specific pre-defined problem.
