Next week three Idea Garages will be taking place on the topic of Open Banking: one in Tallinn, one in Rīga and one in Vilnius. The events aim to bring together people from all over the Baltics to challenge and think again from the ground up how customers’ financial needs are met and how to bring financial services closer to customers through Open Banking. The organisers are looking to get developers, designers, data specialists, marketers, passionate project managers, business masterminds and banking professionals involved.
Head of Daily Banking Products Jevgenijs Kazanins says that Open Banking provides unlimited areas of application in real life: from integrating banking services directly into existing solutions (such as accounting or financial planning software) to creating brand new products by extending and tailoring banking services to the needs of specific customer segments. “As such, we’re hoping to get everyone interested brainstorming together to find ways of changing the future of banking,” he said.
In terms of format, these events are intensive workshops at which we will be setting up teams of developers, designers, business minds and banking experts to efficiently work on ideas that shape and model banking to your needs. At the end of each day, the best teams will be chosen and awarded.
The Idea Garage in Tallinn will take place on 20 May at the Palo Alto Club in Telliskivi Creative City. Find out more about the series, the mentors taking part and how to prepare for the events on Garage48’s website. Luminor’s Developer Portal is available at developer.luminoropenbanking.com.
