#SIXHackathon – The basics

What can I expect?

This year #SIXHackathon is returning to its roots with all participants gathered in one location in the heart of Europe - Schiffbau in Zurich. You will have a unique opportunity to find creative solutions to challenging questions, gain exclusive access to exciting data sets, interact with the FinTech community and network with specialists from SIX.

What will I do there?

You will team up and have 42hours to create a working prototype using SIX provided data and APIs (interface information) related to FinTech. You can either select a topic freely or take inspiration from one of the workshops on offer.

Who is eligible to take part?

Anyone over the age of 18 with an interest in FinTech is eligible to take part. You can be in software development, graphic or interface design, banking and finance, marketing, project management or similar.
