The Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) is organised by Elevandi (an entity set up by the MAS) and Constellar, and in collaboration with MAS and the Association of Banks in Singapore for the development of financial services, public policy, and technology. Last year’s SFF brought together 60,000 participants from 160 countries. SFF 2022 will be held from 2 to 4 November, with industry events and the Innovation Lab Crawl taking place on 31 October and 1 November.
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) launched the MAS Global FinTech Hackcelerator which seeks to identify and recognise ground-breaking solutions that can enable the financial sector to minimise negative impact in our physical world, and harness technology to build towards a digital future with advances in Web 3.0.
The Global FinTech Hackcelerator is open to all start-ups with a market-ready product. Winners will walk away with a total cash prize of S$150,000, and the chance to conduct a Proof-of-Concept with a Singapore-based financial institution with up to S$200,000 from MAS’ FSTI Proof-of-Concept grant.
This year’s Global FinTech Hackcelerator focuses on leveraging the potential of FinTech in accelerating the development of Web 3.0 and Green Finance.
