Citi Bank International is running a digital accelerator program in Kenya called Citi Mobile Challenge. The program seeks to promote development of Financial Technologies through innovations.
Citi is inviting developers, techies and designers with brilliant ideas on improving global banking to work with their digital platforms towards this end.
Developers once selected will choose to work on either consumer solutions or business solutions with the aim of creating the next big FinTech solution. Participants will have access to Citi’s API’s which power their banking, payments and rewards systems.
