Join the Scotiabank Hack IT: Debt Challenge

Hackworks brings together brilliant minds in collaboration and competition to find innovative technology solutions to important business, social, policy, scientific and technical challenges. We are very excited to announce our latest hackathon, the Scotiabank Hack IT: Debt Challenge.

Along with the excitement for the New Year, comes the holiday hangover. After spending the holidays unwrapping stacks of beautifully wrapped presents, January can bring stacks of bills to pay.

Scotiabank believes everyone has a right to become better offer and we are here to help our customers do that. If you’re going to borrow, do it to get ahead not fall behind.

It’s time to help tackle debt in Canada. Let’s leverage technology and build real solutions.

The Scotiabank Digital Factory is gathering some of the brightest minds to be inspired by new technologies and change the future of debt management. Current technologies have just begun to push boundaries in this yet to be defined era of the financial industry and we want you to be part of this change and make your mark!

So let’s join forces and help create a digital experience that helps Canadians manage their debt and be better off. Head over to registration now and Hack IT with us from February 5th – 7th at the brand new Scotiabank Centre.

We want you to be financially better off as well! There will be $25,000 in prizes, so don’t wait, register today and let’s Hack IT!

To equip participants with the insights they need to succeed in building something amazing in just one weekend, we’re hosting a workshop prior to the hackathon. While it’s not mandatory to attend, we highly encourage you to take this chance and network with peers, hang out with fellow participants, engage with {Scotiabank Hack IT} mentors and learn about debt and how it impacts Canadians. The workshop will be held at Steelcase, 200 King Street West, Suite 2400, Toronto on January 27th from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. Register for the workshop here.
