LFC 24 is a 24-hour hackathon, with a focus on Big Data and FinTech, but ideas related to other industries are welcome as well. The event is part of The London Fintech Conference 2017 and the winners of the competition will be awarded a chance to pitch to venture capitalists on stage of the LFC 2017 as well as direct monetary prizes. We are expecting students from all backgrounds to bring in crazy ideas and take them as far as possible within 24 hours. If you are already working on a project, you are welcome to register as a team, taking advantage of the professional mentoring brought to you by partners of CodeatUni, the prizes and the ability to work together for an intensive weekend.
