National Bank is launching the “Innovation Competition” and inviting fintech innovators to participate. The objective for those taking part will be to create new solutions for individuals helping them to better manage their money. Applications are being accepted until December 20, 2019, and the winner will be announced April 30, 2020.
The Innovation Competition will take place over a 6-month period. Finalists will get the opportunity to pitch the solutions they create to a panel of National Bank executives, venture capitalists and other industry stakeholders. Teams will be competing for a $100,000 cash prize (to be awarded in two lump sum payments).
“National Bank has been working closely with top fintechs for many years now. They play a key role in enhancing the quality of our service offer and in promoting entrepreneurship and technology in society at large. I’d like to invite startups, students, innovators, and teams of individuals to take up this innovation challenge with us,” said Louis Vachon, President and Chief Executive Officer of National Bank.
