FinTech Startup Weekend Bahrain 2019
Under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB), in strategic partnership with the National Bank of Bahrain (NBB), Bahrain Economic Development Board (Bahrain EDB), and Tamkeen, Bahrain FinTech Bay (BFB) will host a startup hackathon, titled “FinTech Startup Weekend Bahrain 2019” taking place from the 21st – 24th of November 2019 at the BFB headquarters.
Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event which focuses on building a working prototype which could form the basis of a credible business over the course of a weekend. The weekend brings together people with different skill- sets – primarily software developers, graphics designers and business people – to build applications and develop a commercial case around them.
This year’s Startup Weekend focuses on the development of Bahrain’s FinTech talent by bringing together FinTech enthusiasts and corporates to address problem statements, share perspectives and take the first steps to establish FinTechs.
