UNCC Main Campus - PORTAL Building

Calling all student hackers! Join us to celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship within our Carolina student communities!

The CFH Hackathon will be a time-boxed, team-oriented event that allows developers and designers to engage with cutting edge technology to bridge the gap between business problems and the innovative solutions that drive disruption in the Financial Services industry.

As a student participant, you can create or join a team of 2-3 students in one of the following categories catering to different levels of interest and experience.

  • Digital: Get your hack on! This category requires serious coding and data analytics. You will be judged on the quality and applicability of your code that can solve the identified business need.

  • Entrepreneur: No coding required! This category is open to any and all participants that have disruptive ambitions and wish to present their ideas alongside a robust business model that ensures a solution to the identified business need.

The CFH Hackathon is a great opportunity to network with your peers and meet professionals that are disrupting how banking and financial services operate today.

Have some fun while you’re at it with food, raffles, and prizes for our winners!
