    Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP demonstrating an innovative solution leveraging banking and other data to hack one of three challenges:

    1. As we accelerate our digital transformation, how can you help us improve the speed and efficiency with which we serve our customers? - Consumer Challenge

    You’ll be competing for prizes and recognition for your creative ideas! In addition, there will be networking and learning sessions with technologists and business strategist who will help you build, design and pitch your idea to our panel of experts and share their wisdom on how to take your prototype to the next level. You’ll be powered by food and drink and a space purpose-built to support hackers like you.

    There will be a $10,000 grand prize for the best overall app!! Other prizes will be awarded for best commercial app, and best consumer app.
