Wilkes and Currier Chosen to Judge CB Insights ‘Global Innovation Challenge’
November 3, 2020
Galileo CEO Clay Wilkes and CTO Jeff Currier have been chosen to judge CB Insights’ Global Innovation Challenge, the world’s largest developer hackathon aimed at solving the financial services industry’s biggest challenges. The hackathon is part of CB Insights’ Future of Fintech virtual event, Nov. 16-18.
More than 2,000 international participants–including teams and individuals–are competing in the hackathon to solve challenges covering banking, payments, wealth management, financial inclusion and insurance.
Five finalists will be selected by a panel of judges, including Wilkes and Currier, to present “on stage” on November 17. Prizes will be awarded for the best overall project and best use of the Galileo API–either to solve a Galileo-created challenge or a challenge submitted by another organization.
“As the API standard for card issuing and digital banking, Galileo understands the need for opportunities for great minds to work collaboratively on innovative solutions that expand the possibilities of payments is a worthy undertaking,” said Galileo CEO Clay Wilkes. “That’s why Galileo is proud to partner with CB Insights to sponsor the Future of Fintech Global Innovation Challenge and why I’m proud to be part of the judging panel with my colleague Jeff Currier.
“We’re excited to evaluate the results of developers from around the world applying their insights and ingenuity to the formidable challenges of this competition,” he added.
