Why do we like being involved in this? Because it’s more than just a high-end, resource and expert-packed hackathon, and the banking group offers some serious chances for talented teams and startups who’re interested in teaming up with a big partner.
Teams working with big data:
Friday June 9th – Sunday June 11th @ betahaus | Berlin
After-hackathon traject including:
Throughout 36 hours of hacking, BNP Paribas will match their leading management, fintech experts and mentors with Berlin’s boldest tech startups. Startups get access to BNP Paribas’ API sandbox, with huge amounts of anonymized data to play with. There will be place for 10 teams at the hackathon in Berlin. Up to 2 winners will receive €7.000 to develop their idea in a six-month Digital Bootcamp. From there, selected competitors from all over the world will go on to the Demo Day in Paris, where they’ll have the chance to win an additional €25.000 to further develop their product in collaboration with BNP Paribas. In case you wonder, yes; all of your intellectual property remains solely with you.
Can you extract, collect, analyse or visualise data where other cant? Are you a whizz at using data for client profiling or service trends? Do you have a new idea for using transactional, geolocation or social media data for improving customer services? Perhaps you know how to make creative use of APIs to improve banking services? Whether you’re an established or early-stage startup, or you just want to have a go at a new fintech project in an exciting and competitive atmosphere, sign up to participate! You can apply here via F6S until June 1st latest. BNP will run pre-selection rounds, so the sooner you apply the better. The best application will hear back within a few days.
Don’t forget to check our calendar for more events coming up.
Have you met .. the Softblobs? Since moving back to Berlin from the US, Gesine Krätzner has been making strange creatures out of fabric that she calls Softblobs. They are cute, random, and they'll be waiting in The Basement if you want to try playing around with them.
From toys made of fabric, we’re moving onto wooden sculptures. Matt Danko knows how to bring wood to life and does it amazingly in his free time. In The Basement, he’ll show his latest furniture pieces and sculptures.
In the same room as Matt, you’ll find Lisa Büscher, who has prepared for us a hyper realistic sculpture presentation that gives it the touch of the extreme, surrealistic and absurd. She de- and reconstructs and reorganizes human bodies like Utopia does society.
Colette is a Berlin-based creative working in photography, art direction and set design. Through her visuals she explores intimacy and anonymity. The space that falls somewhere in between.
Ocean. Now! is a collective that accelerates ocean protection. They work with different types of art to motivate our society to protect the Ocean -Now!
In the early afternoon, based in The Garden, you’ll meet Amaury BOUQUET. He’s a Berlin-based French artist from Saint Maur des Fossés, who has a background in social innovation and loves to play with symbols in his works. At 10 Years in beta, he’ll do his special Humanist Tarot readings from 4-6pm.
Parallel to him, also in The Garden, Sebastian Olivares will be painting live a special Mandala created for betahaus. Sebastian is a Berlin-based visual artist who specializes in painting mandala murals and has painted murals in Germany, Chile, Australia and Thailand.
Throughout the day ilan katin will be putting the party vibes onto a mural, specially created for betahaus. He's a Neukölln-based artist with experience in visual work, both static and performative, graphic design, illustration, comics, installations, animation and live video.
We think this one speaks for itself. If you need a little glitz or glitter to get you into the party spirit, come early and we'll do the rest.
Last, but not least, special thanks to our lovely partners who are helping us making this event happen.
