Co-operative Bank of Kenya is inviting applications from ‘the sharpest minds’ in Tech and Innovation across Kenya for the Akili Kali Challenge.
The Akili Kali Challenge is a call for passionate innovators to collaborate with Co-operative Bank in building the next generation of financial solutions beneficial to the Co-operative movement and its membership of over 20 million Kenyans.
“We have designed a virtual challenge so that together, during these trying times, we can develop innovations to support thousands of Co-operative members who are earning a living, saving and investing through the Co-operative movement,” reads the bank’s statement in part.
“The winners of the challenge stand to be awarded a cash reward of up to Ksh. 5 million and an opportunity to integrate and launch their innovation with Co-operative Bank.”
Applications are to be made by August 7, 2020 via the bank’s website.
Shortlisted candidates will undergo a co-development and co-design programme for five weeks under the guide of Co-operative Bank and nominated cooperatives. A virtual demo event will then be held to select one or more winners.
