F10 is a proven expert, ranked multiple times amongst the ten-best European incubator and accelerators, designing and executing the flourishing SIX FinTech Games in the past. Now it’s time to launch the F10 FinTech Hackathon in Zurich, the hometown of F10. The event takes place in close collaboration with our platinum sponsor SIX.

We hope you are as excited as we are and highly motivated to spend 48-hours of ideation and programming with us. What are you waiting for? Meet like-minded, passionate, and curious people to challenge each other and explore the FinTech ecosystem. You are fearless and want to generate new ideas? Great! But take the opportunity to develop it further. We aim not to stop with ideation, but to transform the inputs into validated prototypes. If you have a sincere interest in solving problems and are eager to be challenged, it is the perfect place for you to be.

Great success stories can be written as some Hackathon acquaintances have proven earlier by building promising Startups afterwards. Check how far you can get, explore new opportunities, be an entrepreneur, and maybe even find your potential future partners, with whom you can run your Startup.
