The challenge presented an outstanding opportunity to co-create the future of payments with some 150 participants from Fintech start-ups, Worldline experts and leading enterprises across Europe such as BNP Paribas, E5mode, Accor hotels, OP Financial Group, Conduent, Erste Group, Market Pay Commerzbank and others. Top 26 EU based Fintech’s were selected from amongst hundreds of initial candidates within the European Fintech community. The finalists were given a unique opportunity to engage and innovate the next chapter of the e-payments arena currently taking shape.

The hackathon consisted of 16 customer challenges from different industries and markets. Each Fintech could participate in a maximum of three challenges, with the challenge setting customer and jury deciding the winner in each challenge. P3 platform, Cloudasset’s digital payment platform, won the award for “In-Store Instant Cards Issuing In-App” challenge set by BNP Paribas, for a Co-branded App allowing instant credit card issuing.
