FinTech firms to compete for 2 PoC projects within Liberty
Matchi is delighted to announce another exclusive challenge opportunity. The Liberty Fintech Challenge is currently open for response and will close on Tuesday 31 May 2016 at 23:59 GMT. Shortlisted entries will compete for a PoC project (Proof-of-Concept project) within the Pan African financial services giant.
The challenge is calling for relevant, market-ready responses in two (2) exciting, customer-focused categories:
Category 1: Get an insurance quote, just by speaking to your phone
This category is calling for solutions that will make it easy for Liberty’s financial advisors to get things done, simply by talking. For this category, the focus is on generating an insurance proposal in a few sentences. The solution should be able to turn sounds into words, and those words into intent.
Category 2: Password-less authentication
This category is calling for solutions that will identify customers through their unique behaviour or other attributes –in order to give them access to their information without the need for a password. For this category, potential respondents should think beyond biometrics.
Entry is exclusively through the Matchi platform at https://matchi.biz/challenge-liberty
On the Matchi site, potential challenge respondents from around the world can see videos detailing exactly what Liberty is looking for. Prospective entrants can then sign up or login to submit an overview of their innovation, and motivate why it should be selected for a PoC project.
All entries will be validated and individually scored against set criteria:
- Novelty/ Innovativeness
- Ease of Implementation
- Potential Impact (revenue, cost or efficiency)
- Overall Impression.
The three highest ranking innovations in each category will have an opportunity to present their solution to a judging panel from Liberty on 23 June 2016. From there, one innovation will be announced as the ultimate winner in each category and the two winning firms will continue through to the PoC project phase.
