Wherever you start, one thing is clear: A new class of digital disruptors is transforming the way business is done. From cloud computing and robotics to analytics, artificial intelligence, and cognitive technologies. These technologies build on one another and disrupt businesses from vastly different industries. From travel to transportation to financial services – in a profound way.
The disruptive power of these technologies is topic of this year’s FinTech Days Stuttgart. The aim of the event is to drive innovations into the financial hub Stuttgart. By improving and reinventing the financial sector with ideas from the FinTech Hackathon Stuttgart, different FinTech Startups and Corporate Finnovators.

By linking different technologies to meet customer’s needs we want you to conceptualize and build innovations.
This year’s special: the FinTech track.
The core of Fintech is to marry together technology and finance, by challenging traditional business models across banking, insurance and trading. Furthermore, it enables the Hackathon Stuttgart teams to think outside the box, and unlock the disruptive power of new technologies such as blockchain. During the Hackathon Stuttgart the Hackers can develop innovative financial applications and apply them to cross-industry use cases.
“We are excited about this year’s Hackathon Stuttgart because of its bridge-building philosophy and cross-sector approach by bringing together the industries industry 4.0, mobility and finance”, explains Dr. Marc Mehlhorn, Head of Stuttgart Financial. “By sharing unique data and insights from different financial companies with the Hackathon Stuttgart teams, we want to open doors to new opportunities to shape the future of finance.”
