Shortlisted Fintechs will get the opportunity to showcase their designed solutions to executive sponsors at the Fintech Challenge Day on 5th November, 2019 at Citi’s Innovation Lab in Dublin.

Citi will also be offering finalists the chance to pilot their solutions with leading Citi product teams in 2020.
