Data and APIs from our partners will help attendees to address either of the two challenges that the teams are going to work on: Financial Management (personal or for enterprises) and Efficient Savings. At the end of the event, the best solution for FINANCIAL HEALTH will be awarded with a prize of $50,000 MXN.
Besides that, you will be able to connect with key players of the financial industry, and also with our corporate partners: VISA, Fiinlab powered by Gentera, Banregio, EY Mexico, HSBC Mexico, IGNIA, Latinia, and White & Case.

Startupbootcamp FinTech Hackathon Vol. 2 focuses on FINANCIAL HEALTH and seeks to encourage the creation of technological solutions in any of the following two categories:
- Efficient Savings
Saving has always been fundamental but understimated by most of the population. Whether it’s to fulfill certain projects or dreams, starting a business, investing or just to get out of financial hardships, saving may be the difference between carrying out a project or letting it die.
We want to promote the use of technology for the creation of new ways and methods for savings and investment adapted to all types of budgets, risk profiles and profitability expectations.
- Financial Management
Users of financial services are more frequently looking for tools which allow them to have a 360º vision and control over their finances.
We look forward to the creation of solutions that facilitate better financial decision making and that empowers users and SMBs for them to achieve a better management of their finances. This challenge also aims to create solutions for reducing asymmetry of information for the provision of financial services, which means that information available from users of financial services is sometimes insufficient to profile and measure risks.
Let’s create the financial health solutions of tomorrow!
Remember, the best solution will be awarded with a prize of $50,000 MXN.
To help you to create incredible solutions, we will have APIs available from Visa, Fiinlab, Banregio APIs, and some more. SPOILER ALERT! By participating you can be one of the first developers to use APIs from HSBC.
You will use a secure environment (Sandbox) to test your solution, and have access to real data.
Follow us on Facebook and stay tuned to learn more about the tools that we will have available for the Hackathon.
