Register now

First Bankathon focusing on Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg!

After four very successful events in Germany and Austria we are thrilled to host our first event in the BeNeLux region: in Amsterdam!

Bankathon BeNeLux is organised by figo & Holland FinTech and has the strong support of the whole banking industry.

All stakeholders of the financial service industry in the whole region will be on board at our first Bankathon BeNeLux. The only one who is missing is you!

Are you a friendly hacker who wants to transform the industry? Registration is open now but tickets will not be available for very long. So be quick! We also have limited tickets for non-technical hackers.


No powerpoint

At Bankathon it is all about code. During your final presentation we just want to see two things: passion and your prototype. No slides allowed.

Fresh code

This is a hackathon and not a pitching contest! Therefore, you have develop the whole hack at the event. We will do a code check to ensure equality.

Max. 4 team members

The team size should be between 2 and 4 team members. Choose wisely as all of you have to perform on a top level to win!

Kickoff in Amsterdam:









We are aiming to have around 5-6 API partners at Bankathon BeNeLux. These API providers will be present during the whole event with technical people to support you – so you can get the most out of their APIs. Nevertheless, you can use any API you have access to at that point of time, no restriction from our side! We will announce more API sponsors during the next weeks!

The figo banking API allows you to connect to any bank account and read out data or initate payments.
