Worldline has mapped out plans for the fourth edition of its e-Payments hackathon, as the firm seeks to ensure maximum security in the payment space. 

Embracing the digital space, the event has been confirmed to take place in a fully virtual format on 26-28 January 2022.

Pascal Mauzé, Head of Communication, Marketing & Sales performance at Worldline, commented: “As a global paytech company that is based on a strong open-innovation approach, Worldline is determined to assuming its key role of enabler in the payments industry. We aim to unite payments operators from both the corporate and start-up worlds, to help them co-create the future of payments.

I am confident this years’ event will bring many innovative and solid solutions to support our strong and on-going commitment to the industry.”

The e-Payments Challenge looks to unite fintechs, start-ups, banks, merchants, as well as Worldline’s team of technology experts, as they come together to evolve security within the sector.

The challengers, which is made up of Worldline’s major corporate customers, will propose real-life scenarios and the associated business challenges to start-ups (the disruptors), who will in turn be asked to co-create smart solutions to address these challenges, whilst leveraging Worldline’s (the enabler) e-payments expertise and assets.

Contestants will be tasked with creating solutions for the various hurldes. Worldline will select participating fintechs from applicants from across all disciplines of payment technology – and beyond.
