• JurisTech Hackathon 2022 – Fostering An Innovative Culture

        JurisTech Hackathon

    Following the events of JurisTech and iMoney’s 2022 Annual Dinner that celebrated 25 years of Fintech brilliance, and 10 years of remarkable financial services respectively, the winners of JurisTech Hackathon 2022 were finally announced.

    For those unfamiliar with JurisTech Hackathon, it is an intense, fast-paced event where teams come together to brainstorm and develop new ideas, prototypes, and solutions. It involves a high degree of collaboration and offers a unique opportunity for teams to stretch their creativity and problem-solving skills to the limit. 

    This year’s hackathon was no exception, with 11 teams giving their all to come up with creative solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing our company. Announced on the 1st of September, all participating teams were given two months to ideate, propose, and implement their solutions. The ideas that were generated were truly impressive and showed the incredible talent and dedication of our employees.

    The objective of the hackathon is to build an innovative mindset among Jurisians and Incredibles, while also empowering them to be problem-solvers. The challenge of this year’s hackathon was to ‘represent your business unit to identify, develop, and implement one innovative business solution that increases product and/or service quality, improves efficiency, and reduces costs.’ The team with the winning solution will be awarded a RM5,000 cash prize.
