DerivHack 2019

Following last year’s success, our member, Barclays will once again be working with ISDA to host the DerivHack 2019. Singapore FinTech Association (SFA) is proud to be a supporting partner for this year’s hackathon that will be held simultaneously at Barclay's London, New York and Singapore office from the 16-17 October 2019.

The event will feature the best and brightest minds collaboratively working to demonstrate progress in standardized data and processes using common repositories. Participants will explore ways to externalise aspects of post-trade processing to unlock material savings and efficiencies in the derivatives and securities industry.


PayPal Startup Partnership Program

For startups to succeed, they need a community in which they can thrive. Through this PayPal Partnership program, PayPal endeavors to nurture and support the creation of a new generation of technology companies. It provides an access to FinTech domain experts, mentoring and guidance by business leaders, and access to a network of investors.

It also provides a partnership model whereby over a 5-month duration, PayPal business and product champions and startups come together to co-develop a proof-of-concept (POC) or conduct trial. Based on a pre-agreed set of success metrics, the collaboration will serve as validation of the ideas and concepts, and can lead to a formal procurement, business partnership or investment by PayPal.
