Are you the next CitiMobile Challenge Champion? Registration is open now!

Can you help to transform banking as we know it?  The answer is YES and here’s how…

IBM is proud to be a strategic sponsor of the Citi® Mobile Challenge – a quest to find developers and designers to create new and innovative FinTech solutions with Citi’s digital platforms.  After successful events in the US, Europe, Middle East and Africa, the Citi® Mobile Challenge is now starting in Asia Pacific and is hosting Demo Days in Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangalore and Sydney – and registration is open now!

Using Bluemix, you can apply your skills to develop, design and impress in two categories:
Consumer solutions:  create innovations which give consumers personalized, intuitive products and services that transform how they think about banking.
Business solutions:  develop new financial technology tools and services to meet the needs of small businesses, large corporations, institutions, organizations or governments.

Developers using Bluemix will be ahead of the game with a platform as a service (PaaS) that gives them simplicity, speed, agility and critical tools – all without the overhead of setting up the underlying architecture.  And, as strategic sponsor, IBM is there each step of the way, giving Challenge participants a wide spectrum of face-to-face and virtual product education, consulting and coding assistance by top experts – throughout the competition.

Finalists will compete for an opportunity to take their technologies into production with Citi’s support, plus a share of USD $100,000 in cash awards and a suite of services from Citi Mobile Challenge sponsors.  Selected participants will showcase their concepts at live Demo Day events.

So, be a part of the banking transformation!  Go to http://www.citimobilechallenge.com/ to register for the Citi Mobile Challenge (registration closes September 2, 2015).  Rally your team and get everyone registered to use Bluemix here:  https://ibm.biz/IBMCMCAP15
