As a mark of its resilience, Wema Bank has over the years proven itself as an incubator of inventions and creative ideas, traits that continue to define its operations long after its establishment in 1945.

With the launch of ALAT, Nigeria’s first digital banking platform, the bank extended the limits of experiential banking. Safe to say they are Nigeria’s most innovative bank for a reason.

This year, Wema Bank is raising the stakes with the launch of their own hackathon – ‘Hackaholics.’ They simply can’t stop, won’t stop innovating and creating magic.

What Hackaholics is about

From March 29 – 31, 2019, Hackaholics will pull together tech-driven professionals to create actionable solutions. Innovators and creative thinkers have an opportunity to convert visionary concepts into workable applications for financial, institutional and social problems. Along with a $10,000 prize money, winning ideas will be nurtured to become marketable and will also receive full technical support.

The goal of the event is to harvest impactful tech solutions that re-echo the bank’s passion for building a community of innovators constantly working to bring safer, more convenient and profitable banking to customers.

Are you an innovator, creative thinker, developer or addicted to hacking existing technologies to create better solutions? Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to bring your ideas to life.
