India's 1st Fintech Olympiad To Be Launched By India Fintech Forum For Empowering Youth With Financial Wisdom

Global Participation: Students Worldwide Join the Fintech Olympiad

The Fintech Olympiad, a trailblazing competition focused on financial literacy, has already garnered substantial interest, with applications pouring in from over 2000 colleges. Notably, the competition transcends borders, drawing participants not only from universities across India but also from Hong Kong, France, the USA, Indonesia, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and Vietnam.

Empowering Tomorrow’s Financial Leaders: The Fintech Olympiad Experience

The Fintech Olympiad is a multifaceted competition uniquely designed to empower students with a foundational understanding of personal finance management and a comprehensive overview of the fintech industry, all presented in an engaging and informative manner. The competition unfolds in three distinct stages, culminating in an exhilarating grand finale set to take place in the bustling city of Mumbai.

Stage 1: Access to Premium Learning Materials

Upon registration, students gain access to meticulously curated online learning material that equips them with the knowledge and skills essential for the competition. This content curation ensures that students receive high-quality educational resources, eliminating the need to rely on ‘Finfluencers’ who may not consistently offer the best financial education content.

Stage 2: Self Assessment Exam

The competition proceeds to the next two distinct stages, beginning with a Self Assessment Exam.

Stage 3: Online Proctored Exam

The third stage of the Fintech Olympiad encompasses an Online Proctored Exam, which challenges participants’ knowledge and skills acquired through their engagement with the learning materials.

Sougata Basu, Founder CEO of CashRich and an Executive Committee Member of the India FinTech Forum, expressed, “India stands at the forefront of fintech innovation, and the Fintech Olympiad is our way of nurturing the next generation of fintech talent and financial product consumers. We are thrilled to collaborate with industry behemoths who share our vision of empowering students with the knowledge and skills required to excel in the ever-evolving fintech landscape. We wholeheartedly welcome like-minded partners to join us on our mission to create a more financially inclusive and tech-savvy future.”

Culminating in Prestigious Awards and Networking Opportunities

The Fintech Olympiad reaches its zenith in a prestigious fintech event held in Mumbai, where the finalists will contend for the coveted Fintech Olympiad awards. Moreover, the winners will have the exclusive opportunity to attend and network with luminaries from fintech companies, financial institutions, and banks at IFTA 2023.

The event, which will be a hybrid gathering, promises the participation of distinguished industry leaders such as Nilesh Shah, Managing Director of Kotak Mahindra Asset Management, Vikram Gupta, Managing Partner at IvyCap Ventures, Sanjay Jain, Partner at Bharat Innovation Fund, and many more, all converging on November 1st at IFTA 2023 in Mumbai.
