About the challenge
NUS Fintech Month Hackathon is a 3-week innovation and development competition consisting of three main rounds, open to mainly university and tertiary students. Participants will not only need to come up with the most relevant and creative solutions in the finance industry but also produce elegant applications that are in line with current business challenges.
The theme for NUS Fintech Month 2023 will be "Fintech As A Service" and for the purpose of the hackathon, we define Fintech as a Service (FaaS) as allowing any organization to use APIs to embed useful financial-related capabilities into their existing applications, products, and services.
