London Business School Hackathon
The London Business School is proud to host its 2nd annual Hackathon, an effort to bring together some amazing minds from across London for 3 days of product creation madness. This year, we’re excited to put the focus on financial technologies, building on the strengths of LBS and London.
Key Dates and Events:
London is one of the hottest markets for financial technology innovation. In 2014, UK fintech startups took home a staggering $623m in funding or 42% of all fintech funding in Europe. LBS alumni such as Renaud Laplanche (Lending Club), Ayan Mitra (CrowdBnk), and Ismail Ahmed (WorldRemit) are similarly making headlines. This year’s Hackathon aims to build on this momentum by combining the financial masterminds of LBS with the city’s top technical talent to create next-gen fintech solutions.
