For Immediate Release.

13th, September, 2020: The first of its kind Women in FinTech Hackathon is currently underway in Kampala with 15 women led and dominated teams taking part.

The participants are conceptualizing and developing different financial inclusion products with special focus on women in areas such as payments, lending, saving, e-commerce, e-education and e-agriculture among others.  

As part of the project, all teams are interacting with a pool of facilitators, mentors and assessors pulled together from all over the world but mainly accessible remotely via ID8, Slack and other virtual platforms.

Organized by HiPipo under its Include EveryOne program in partnership with Crosslake Tech, ModusBox, Mojaloop Foundation and Level One Project, this women focused hackathon will culminate in to the Women in FinTech summit on Friday 18th September.

“We are excited to deliver this. Day One had all teams get introduced to latest financial inclusion tools, detailed discussions around level one principles, submission of each team’s problem statement and business case,” Nicholas Kalungi, the COO of HiPipo, noted on Saturday 12th September, the first day of this Hackathon.

He added; “The next four days are very crucial to the success of each team. The teams are doing their work and getting continuous guidance from facilitators, mentors and assessors both on site and remotely. We are convinced that this is the start of something amazing for all of the participants.”

The Women in FinTech Hackathon and Summit come at the back of the great success of the recently concluded 40 Days 40 Fintechs initiative and the FinTech Landscape Exhibition that attracted over 100 financial sector organisations from all over the world, between May 13 and July 30th 2020.

    Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after going through a few of the
    articles I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m certainly delighted
    I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they
    just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
    people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

    Thanks
