Large Singapore bank launches Innovation Challenge

Calling the world’s best fintechs to solve real business problems


One of the largest and most established Singapore banks has launched the TOV Innovation Challenge 2018 that aims to reimagine customer experience through co-innovation with fintech firms.

Shortlisted fintechs will be invited to join a 12-week programme where they will further develop their implementable solutions to address the challenges put forth by eight different business units in the bank. This is a collaborative programme where both fintechs and the respective business units will have to work closely together to co-develop and test the solutions.

“We look forward to working with Fintechs on fresh solutions that will revolutionise our banking processes and the way customers bank with us. We want to marry their innovations with our insights on customer behaviour and banking, so we can develop – together – a viable Fintech solution that we can bring to commercialisation. This is our commitment to the Fintechs we choose to partner with. Come and share your solutions with us, and let’s build something mutually beneficial for the industry – together.” Head of Fintech and Innovation Group at the bank
