Wema Bank to launch Hackathon
To boost Nigeria’s technology sector, Wema Bank is set to launch Hackaholics, its version of hackathon, on March 29 and 30, 2019.
‘’Hackathon is a design sprint-like event, in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers and others, often including graphic experts, collaborate intensively on software projects,” a statement from the bank said.
Every successful hackathon harvests new solutions that drive business ideas and scale the heights of technology in today’s world.
With Hackaholics, Wema Bank said it would pull together start-ups and young tech professionals to develop digital solutions that will alleviate financial, institutional and social challenges.
Participants will analyse problem areas, strategise, brainstorm and develop solutions that will be screened by a reliable team of judges.
