Barclays Command Centre is looking to work with those who can build game changing solutions to help shape the future of financial services. They have identified four areas where they feel the tech start up community could provide a solution or develop one to meet their needs.
This is an opportunity for companies/individuals to develop innovative ideas that can then be pitched directly to one of the world’s largest banks. It is a unique opportunity to demonstrate your skills and fast track your solution into a new market.
Not only is it a business opportunity it is also an excellent way to raise your profile.
The event will be a two day ‘hackathon’ based at Launch22 in Liverpool. You will be given four project briefs to choose from which you can work on in teams, as an individual or collaborate with other attendees. At the end of the second day you will have the opportunity to privately pitch your idea to the Barclays Team.
