atdc-1Are you drawn to challenges, problem solving, and the idea of possibly creating the next great unicorn in financial technology (FinTech)?

If so, you just might be part of the winning team in the Advanced Technology Development Center’s (ATDC) second FinTech Hack @ ATDC competition. (REGISTER HERE)

ATDC, a program of the Georgia Institute of Technology that serves as the state’s technology incubator, is hosting the hackathon, which runs from Feb. 10 through Feb. 12.

Financial technology and services giants Worldpay US and TSYS are sponsors of the competition.

But this is more than your typical hackathon. The FinTech Hack @ ATDC is the competition for entrepreneurs, developers, designers, and innovators who seek to take their ideas to the next level. It will provide winning teams with the critical post-hack engagement, mentoring, and support to not only create, but build and launch viable startup companies.

Of course, this is a serious competition, so there will be prizes, including cash, gadgets, and some cool swag, too. Ultimately, participants will decide which ideas to work on using our sponsors’ APIs. They can work on their own projects or work on challenges presented to them by our sponsors.

ATDC will post updates and more information in the coming weeks on ATDC.org, Facebook, and Twitter, but here are some key dates to remember:

  • Jan. 13: Judges and FinTech Mentors announced
