You want to create buzz, be innovative and find new partners?

With BANKATHONx you can do all of that!



The Bankathon is Germany’s first Fintech Hackathon. Within a very short time, the finleap connect team has found a formula for organising a successful event platform that fosters innovation, used by banks and Fintech companies alike. So far, more than 600 developers have participated at the events in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Berlin, Prague and Vienna and 75 partners as well as numerous supporters have gained valuable insights into new Fintech and banking trends.

Organising a hackathon is a challenging task. It requires a lot of resources, expertise and – most importantly – the necessary network. With BANKATHONx you have access to all of this: to our vast ecosystem as well as to our ability to create a unique hackathon experience.
