‘NBB Tree’ wins Digital Banking Challenge

A team named ‘NBB Tree’ has won first place in the National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) Digital Banking Challenge organised in partnership with Bahrain FinTech Bay (BFB).

The grand finale of the challenge held yesterday during the ongoing Bahrain National Week at Expo 2020 in Dubai also saw the team named ‘Active Zone’ as the second-place winner, and ‘Tullab’ as the third-place winner.

Selected based on the best-proposed solutions for NBB’s digital app, the winners will receive cash prizes, internships at the bank and BFB, as well as three months of incubation support from BFB.

The finalists pitched their solutions on demo day to a panel of judges comprised of NBB and BFB members, including Razi Amin, group chief information officer at NBB; Subah Al Zayani, chief executive for retail banking at NBB, and Suzy Al Zeerah, chief partnerships officer at Bahrain FinTech Bay.

The event was moderated by Hisham Alfateh, head of corporate communications at NBB, and saw several speakers from the bank and BFB taking part.

NBB’s Digital Challenge saw seven short-listed teams embarking on a six-week mentorship track which consisted of a variety of workshops and one-on-one mentorship sessions to impart vocational insights and sector knowledge.
