Student Team Does SB Proud In The PolyFinTech100 API Hackathon 2021
29 Jul 2021
On 24 July 2021, Codetama, a team of six students from Diploma in Financial Informatics did Singapore Polytechnic proud in the annual PolyFinTech100 API Hackathon supported by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). They won 1st prize in the InsureTech Category, having competed against teams from other polytechnics.
Codetama’s competition journey began in March when they brainstormed ideas to address a real-world problem statement, planned their business strategy, developed a prototype and prepared their pitch. In June, they emerged from the qualifying round as one of the seven teams from School of Business (SB) to represent SP.
A real team effort, all SB teams were closely coached by a dozen lecturers from various courses who stepped forward to help our students as they prepared for the competition. Many other lecturers volunteered to be judges to evaluate teams in the qualifying round.
The competition is not over. Codetama will compete against the other four 1st prize winners in the Grand Finals at the Fintech Festivals this November. They have our school cheering them on!
