The Open Bank Project, leading API solution for banks, has partnered with Societe Generale Group, one of the largest European financial services groups, to hold an internal hackathon focused on Open Banking. 

The hackathon welcomes Societe Generale Group worldwide staff and interested students to Paris from July 5th to 7th 2017 to participate in designing and prototyping new solutions in three areas: 
* Financial Coaching: How can the bank proactively offer services or ideas to help customers make better financial decisions? 
* Social Banking: How can the bank provide financial services to allow customers to work together, learn and recommend services to fellow customers? 
* New Payment Solutions: What types of new, seamless payment or banking solutions can be designed for the emerging user experiences of today? 

To bring their ideas to life, participants will have access to the Open Bank Project Sandbox in which test data emulating real situations is been used. The Open Bank Project sandbox offers more than 130 Open Banking APIs available. 

“We strongly believe that the usage of APIs is key in the bank Digital transformation. The hackathon will give us the opportunity to work closer with our businesses on those topics and innovate on banking apps. TESOBE, the company behind Open Bank Project is the right partner to help us in facing this challenge.” Yvan Mirochnikoff Head of Expertise & Jean-Sébastien Goetschy, Group Chief Enterprise Architecture Officer at Societe Generale Group. 

“An internal hackathon is a key milestone on an Open Banking Journey and we are excited to accompany Societe Generale Group on this one. This is a unique opportunity for the bank to evangelise internally, collaborate and experiment in a safe and controlled environment, it’s a tremendous accelerator for the next steps” says Ismail Chaib, COO of TESOBE Ltd / Open Bank Project.
