Singapore FinTech Festival Coverage: Hackathon & “Learning Bytes”

Don’t have FOMO.  Check out our Singapore FinTech Festival coverage:

We were honored to partner with the Monetary Authority of Singapore on their first week-long global Singapore FinTech Festival in November which coincided with our Singapore campus opening.  The Festival attracted more than 11,000 from all over the world.

To kick-off the event, we teamed up with Startupbootcamp FinTech to throw a FinTech hackathon.  Partners from companies such as Xignite, Yodlee/Envestnet, Quantopian, IBM, Mastercard and more sponsored, mentored, judged and added brainpower to the event.  Check out our video for hackathon coverage.
