There will be three new cities and two new business lines who are embarking on the adventure… There are now ten cities participating simultaneously! Luxembourg, Singapore and Nanjing are joining San Francisco, Paris, Brussels, Rome, Berlin, Warsaw and Istanbul to help create a state of the art customer experience.

All of the startups involved will work on projects related to the theme: “Let’s create a state-of-the-art customer experience”.

Following several successful collaborations with start-ups, BNP Paribas Wealth Management will participate in this edition in 7 cities, each with its’ own specific challenges:

- Luxembourg: “Imagine and invent additional complementary services that BGL BNP Paribas could offer to its customers – extra-financial services included”, as well as “Create a true digital user experience that would allow clients to accomplish a lifetime goal – must be a solution for the end user (not product-oriented)”

The BNP Paribas International Hackathon doesn’t stop there! It’s a program committed to helping startups over the long-term. After the weekend, finalists will work in close collaboration with our experts to co-create and develop the best solutions for BNP Paribas Wealth Management.
