BBVA realigns startup competition to boost FinTech

BBVA is changing its Open Talent competition for startups as it realigns its FinTech strategy.

In Brief:

  • The Open Talent Competition will include specific challenges startups need to solve through FinTech.

  • These challenges come directly from the bank’s business units in core countries.

  • These will include regulation and personal finance management.

What does this mean?

This is part of a wider realignment of BBVA’s relationship with FinTech – its Open Innovation unit has been working with an ecosystem of FinTechs. Winners across each country will be able to work through a proof of concept with BBVA. The aim is for the bank to get a usable product and startups to get “real” business.
