2016

Τον περασμένο Ιούνιο το Κέντρο Καινοτομίας της Eurobank διοργάνωσε τον πρώτο Περιφερειακό Διαγωνισμός FinTech “Beyond Hackathon”, σε συνεργασία με τις εταιρείες Found.ation και The Cube με στόχο να ενθαρρύνει, να καλλιεργήσει και να προαγάγει την ανοιχτή καινοτομία στον κλάδο των χρηματοπιστωτικών υπηρεσιών (Financial Technology – Fintech). Καλωσορίσαμε περισσότερους από 150 συμμετέχοντες από την Ελλάδα, αλλά και από χώρες όπως η Βουλγαρία, Ρουμανία, Σλοβενία, ακόμα και Ηνωμένο Βασίλειο και Ισραήλ.

Στο κάλεσμα μας ανταποκρίθηκαν με ενθουσιασμό και όρεξη για δουλειά νέοι άνθρωποι με δεξιότητες Software Developers, Marketers, Designers καθώς και Business Developers οι οποίοι συγκεντρωθήκαν στον πολυχώρο the Hub Events. Με την ολοκλήρωση των ομιλιών διεθνούς φήμης εκπροσώπων της παγκόσμιας σκηνής Fintech με στόχο να εμπνεύσουν τους συμμετέχοντες αλλά και να μοιραστούν τις προσωπικές εμπειρίες τους από τη διεθνή FinTech σκηνή, ξεκίνησαν τα pitching sessions. 17 από τους συμμετέχοντες παρουσίασαν την ιδέα τους καλύπτοντας ένα ευρύ φάσμα προϊόντων και υπηρεσιών από προγράμματα επιβράβευσης μέχρι και εφαρμογές βασισμένες σε τεχνολογίες blockchain ενώ αργότερα κατά το networking session προσπάθησαν να προσελκύσουν μέλη για να δημιουργήσουν τις ομάδες που θα υλοποιήσουν την ιδέα τους.  

Το hacking ξεκίνησε ενεργά από το Σάββατο το πρωί όπου οι συμμετέχοντες έχοντας οργανωθεί σε 18 ομάδες των 4-5 ατόμων ξεκίνησαν να συνεργάζονται προκειμένου να μετατρέψουν τις ιδέες τους σε προϊόντα. Παράλληλα οι ομάδες συζητούσαν με τους mentors που είχαν στη διάθεσή τους - στελέχη και επαγγελματίες του χώρου- προκειμένου να θέσουν ερωτήματα και προβληματισμούς και να λάβουν τις απαραίτητες κατευθύνσεις. Οι 18 ομάδες, εργάστηκαν εντατικά προκειμένου την Κυριακή να παρουσιάσουν τις ιδέες τους στην κριτική επιτροπή. Το πρωί της Κυριακής βρήκε τις ομάδες να εργάζονται πυρετωδώς για την ολοκλήρωση των προσπαθειών τους και μάλιστα κάποιες ομάδες όχι μόνο είχαν εξελίξει την ιδέα τους αλλά είχαν και πρωτότυπο δείγμα (working prototype)!

Το απόγευμα της Κυριακής 26 Ιουνίου ο Διαγωνισμός Beyond Hackathon κορυφώθηκε με τις παρουσιάσεις 17 ομάδων ενώπιον της κριτικής επιτροπής και τη βράβευση των 3 νικητριών ομάδων του Διαγωνισμού  με χρηματικά βραβεία αξίας 5.000€, 3.000€, και 2.000€ αντίστοιχα.

Ένα Σαββατοκύριακο γεμάτο εμπειρίες, έντονα συναισθήματα, δημιουργικότητα, ένταση, προσμονή, ήταν μόνο κάποιες από τις λέξεις που επέλεξαν οι συμμετέχοντες για να περιγράψουν την εμπειρία τους. Το BeyondHackathon ήταν ένα εξαιρετικό γεγονός το οποίο ανυπομονούμε να επαναλάβουμε φέτος!  Μείνετε συντονισμένοι! Το BeyondHackathon 2017 έρχεται!
