Over 80% of Fortune 100 companies conduct hackathons to drive innovation. I4G HACKFest 2023 will be conducting a virtual Hackathon in partnership with FCMB.

This is the right time to go beyond the bank’s four walls and leverage FCMB APIs to promote Open Banking Initiatives. It will run for over 50 hours where African techies will collaborate and virtually build proofs of concept and minimum viable products (MVPs).

Ingressive for Good is a non-profit organization launched to address the glaring inequalities within African tech ecosystems. Our mission is to empower young African tech talents in need, to reach full potential through learning and the power of work. We do these in 4 ways – Microscholarships, Technical Training, Talent Placement, and of course community – I4G circle.

Hackathons have long been staple events in the Technology Industry since the late 1990s. A Hackathon is an intense event that brings together computer programmers like software developers, graphic designers, and user interface specialists along with industry process experts and professionals to identify issues and create software solutions, usually within a weekend.

The I4G Hackathon is brought to you by Ingressive For Good in partnership with FCMB. The Hackathon brings together techies across Africa including developers, engineers, students, designers, idea generators and other stakeholders in the tech space to drive sustainable innovations and build projects that address pressing real-life business problems and social issues. It will run for over 50 hours. African techies will collaborate and virtually build proofs of concept and minimum viable products (MVPs) for a specific pre-defined problem.
