Visa Climate Tech Hackathon 2024

Welcome to the Visa Climate Tech Hackathon, where innovation meets sustainability! Visa is on a mission to revolutionize the way we use payment data, creating groundbreaking solutions that drive sustainable outcomes and enable consumers to make informed choices. This isn't just about environmental consciousness; it's about harnessing the power of data to create a world where money management and reducing environmental impact go hand in hand.  Join coders and non-coders to innovate for a better, more responsible future, turning payment data into a tool for positive change. Don’t miss the opportunity to reshape the landscape of environmental responsibility together, one transaction at a time. 

At this hackathon, you will develop solutions that target one, or a combination of, the following:

Enable informed decision-making to enable more sustainable choices

Research has shown that consumers today are looking for more and more innovative ways to manage their money – what if we could help them do that while reducing their environmental impact at the same time? A win for the consumer AND the planet! How can we bring payment and data together to contribute to a future that is both financially and environmentally responsible?

Increase consumer awareness and trust in Climate Tech solutions

How can we help consumers make informed decisions when it comes to how they spend their money and how that impacts the environment? By improving the access to and accuracy of data related to spending, we have a huge opportunity to give consumers a sense of agency and empowerment when it comes to managing their environmental impact.

Accelerate sustainable finance

Sustainable finance can mean many things, but ultimately it's about embedding sustainable practices and principles into all our products and services, and data is a great way to do that. How can the intersection of data and payment help here?

The Visa Climate Tech Hackathon is a unique platform where you can collaborate with Visa mentors and fellow innovators who share your vision. Together, we're on the brink of developing tech-driven solutions that can make a significant, positive impact. This is your chance to get involved!
