OBH drove us to launch TimedFX as a business. Through the acceleration of the program we hit roadblocks faster and learned lessons sooner.
Our experience with the hackathon was fantastic - the best organised online event we have been in. The 1:1 and small group interview/ challenge/ mentoring sessions were extremely valuable in consolidating ideas, improving presentation and helping us understand the many common questions, skeptical perspectives or criticisms we would be likely to hit.

Shaun Daley, TimedFX2020 Grand Winner

The hackathon was a very pleasant experience for us! We had fun and learned a lot from the interactions and open discussions with mentors and other participants. This helped us a lot in working through our idea and defining it better.
It was a great opportunity for us to meet new people and help our team collaborate better.

Alexandru Martiniuc, Spevialk2020 Special Prize Winner

I am incredibly excited by the projects Open Banking Hackathon has uncovered and I believe this year can bring even more interesting projects in the spotlight. The event is a launching pad for early-stage projects and a first step in the collaboration with financial institutions and relevant fintech players.
