With this hackathon, we want to boost collective thinking and leverage best predictive analytics, API and Artificial Intelligence solutions to make businesses more resilient and create new financing solutions to support their growth,” said Alexandra Syrovatski, Managing Director of Kyriba France & Benelux. “This is why we encourage everybody to take up this challenge and participate to this hackathon, which is unique from both a sustainable development and fintech perspective.”
