Wema Bank Plc has reinforced its commitment to technology banking with its plan to launch hackathon to help tech- start-ups achieve their goals.

Hackathons are tech projects that bring together software developers and other digital creators to design solutions for everyday challenges. Every successful hackathon harvests new solutions that will drive business ideas and scale the heights of technology in the world.

In a statement, the bank said with Hackaholics, it will pull together startups and young tech professionals to develop digital solutions that will alleviate financial, institutional and social challenges.

Participants will be required to analyse the given problem areas, strategies, brainstorm and develop solutions that will be screened by a reliable team of judges.

Along with awarding the best solution with full technical support and funding up to $10,000, the hackathon will improve skills and re-echo the bank’s passion to build a community of innovators working constantly to bring safer, more convenient and profitable banking,” it said.
