UBS – The Future of Finance Challenge.

Sector: Finance

Our brief: Where are the disruptive ideas, technologies and partners that can transform the world of financial services?

What we did: We designed and delivered The Future of Finance, a global technology search programme. We ran launch and judging events, created social media and PR communications and tailored our Discover™ platform to accept applications for four separate challenges.

What happened: Three winners of the UBS Future of Finance Challenge were selected for support and acceleration from over 600 participants from 52 countries. Rewards for the finalists include cash prizes and acceleration opportunities worth over $300,000 and 300 hours of dedicated coaching and mentoring from UBS experts and partners.

“Exceptional experience from what clearly was exceptional hard work. What you just did was very, very hard to do well. Many are doing a very poor job of this.”
