Swiss Financial Innovation Desk (FIND), the new Swiss Financial Innovation Desk, is launching its flagship event “SwissHacks”, a fintech-focused hackathon powered by Tenity to create the future of finance.  For 48 hours, participants will develop prototype solutions with corporates and investors.

FIND, operating independently within the State Secretariat for International Finance of the Federal Department of Finance, acts as a driving force for financial innovation in Switzerland. Its primary goal is to foster financial innovation by facilitating communication and cooperation among innovation initiatives, research endeavours, investors, and regulatory bodies on a national and global scale.

With the premiere of SwissHacks on 28-30 June 2024, FIND invites students, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and finance professionals to tackle real-world challenges and opportunities within the financial sector. It encourages seasoned hackatheers and hackanewbies alike to immerse in SwissHacks 2024.

Participants will have the chance to showcase their innovative prototype solutions and ideas in front of a panel of visionaries, industry experts and potential investors. FIND’s flagship event promises to be a melting pot of creativity and innovation, generating actionable solutions that contribute to the future of finance and benefits society at large.

The winning teams will be honored in a closing ceremony in the presence of the State Secretary for International Finance, Daniela Stoffel, but additionally have the opportunity to present their solutions on stage at the Point Zero Forum and at a side event on 2 July 2024 (by invite only) to decision makers and investors from around the world.
