The BizGees startup has just joined the F10 Fintech Accelerator Program in Zurich. We are looking to generate custom designed micro loans for UN Refugee Entrepreneurs. We are using peer to peer lending to organise this support. This post is about our journey. It starts with winning the Infosys Challenge for Financial Inclusion at the UNICEF Fintech Jam for Good 2016.
I was finishing off on Friday. An email came in from startup bootcamp. I use their hackathons to test out new ideas all the time. They highlighted a Fintech Jam for Good event being sponsored by UNICEF. It clicked this was it. This event would be ideal for us. We felt this was just what we needed. It would allow us to use fintech to help organise The Swat Valley Guild - The SVG. We could build a team and use open innovation.
