WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BANKATHON

Matteo Rizzi

Bankathon is a good example that Germany is one of the most fertile grounds for fintech.

Matteo Rizzi, SBT Venture Capital

Andrei Brasoveanu

The outstanding event organized by figo and Gini is one of the top fintech-focused hackathons in Europe in terms of both ambition and depth of products. I'm convinced that several of the participating teams will pursue their ideas commercially going forward.

Andrei Brasoveanu, Accel

Nigel Verdon

I am certain that Bankathon will have a long lasting impact on the industry. In the final pitches I have seen some amazing innovations which were developed in a very short period of time. Personally, I cannot wait to see them hosting a similar event in UK.

Nigel Verdon, founder of Currency Cloud and Partner at Orange Growth Capital
