In 2016, insight2Impact implemented the first DataHack4FI innovation competition. The key objective was to create a platform for finance, tech and data enthusiasts to collaborate in using data and analytics to solve business challenges and extend financial services to underserved communities. 

Many of the participants have shared that the competition was a turning point in the way they viewed and used data. These and other positive outcomes of the competition are highlighted in the presentation below. Season 2 of DataHack4FI will culminate in May 2018 and this year we have deliberately mobilised emerging young data scientists and we look forward to sharing their stories with you soon.
