The third edition of ING Fintech Village has just been launched. Start-ups from around the world, especially those from the Grand Duchy, are invited to submit their applications on the fintech-village.be website until 1 December 2017.
Up to ten of them will be chosen to participate in this accelerator in 2018.
In 2018, the solutions offered by the start-ups must be able to tackle four major challenges
- the “Personal Bank” Challenge: create “highly digital” solutions to allow the bank to be “very personal” with its customers;
- the “Secure Bank” Challenge: introduce new, user-friendly security, authentication and connection solutions;
- the “Efficient Bank” Challenge: create solutions that increase efficiency tenfold thanks to new simple working methods;
- the “Beyond Banking” Challenge: disruptive ways to produce, distribute and/or deliver financial services that go beyond traditional banking.
A programme of this scale doesn’t just happen by itself: as with the first edition, Deloitte, SWIFT Innotribe and The Bridge are ING’s main partners in this adventure.
Several ING entities are heavily involved in the project: ING Belgium, ING Netherlands and ING Luxembourg. ING Luxembourg will participate in the decision-making and selection process, whilst also taking part in the mentoring programme.
There are also 3 ING Luxembourg representatives among the mentors: Sandrine De Vuyst, Head of Private Banking; Damien Degros, Head of Wholesale Banking and Erik Jacquemart, Transformation Office & Head of Innovation.
