On 6 July, Stibbe Amsterdam will host the kick-off event of the first 'Trust Hackathon' for the trust industry organised by Finos. Main goal of this hackaton is to produce blockchain prototype solutions addressing the corporate services industry’s bank account creation challenges.

During the Hackaton (from 6-8 July) three teams of business people, programmers and design experts will develop a working prototype to solve one of the corporate services industry's main issues: the creation of bank accounts for their clients. The hackaton will be led by Finos – a startup which focuses on solving the trust industry’s largest challenges with modern technology & operational expertise.

In addition to Stibbe, the hackaton will be supported by PwC and several other mentors.
