The LHoFT in partnership with Temenos, and the support of the Ministry of State and Digital Lëtzebuerg initiative, is organizing the LTS Fintech Hackathon in Luxembourg. We asked to the LHoFT Foundation Team details on the initiative.
What is the purpose of your hackathon?
Over the course of the last weekend of June, 30 teenage students from the Luxembourg Tech School (LTS) will develop and present their answers to the question: “What does the bank of the future look like?” The students will be guided by various senior technology and business mentors from the local financial services industry. The Hackathon will be hosted by the LHoFT and the technical infrastructure provided by Temenos.
What do you expect from it?
Part of the role of the LHoFT is also to enhance knowledge regarding financial technology and digital trends. With this Hackathon, we are very much looking forward to see how these 30 teenage students from the Luxembourg Tech School (LTS), future customers and potential employees in financial services, will respond to this critical question: “What does the bank of the future look like?” Their needs and expectations, shaped by the technologies they use, will be different to ours. It is maybe the start of the next revolution.
Who can join the weekend?
This hackathon is the perfect opportunity to exchange with these bright millennials about their thoughts on banking and to help them develop their solutions, passing on knowledge and experience.
