Copenhagen Fintech and CARE call for start-ups
Copenhagen Fintech and non-profit organisation CARE are seeking start-ups with ideas in providing loans and cash for the unbanked in Asia and Africa.
According to the duo, the plan is for firms to bring new concepts and innovation in the way they work with poverty and global aid programmes.
At the moment, both organisations want to do a proof of concept (PoC) and offer €13,500 to a start-up with the right solution.
On Copenhagen Fintech’s site, it explains that its Virtual Fintech Lab wants to “find unique solutions to key challenges they meet as they work to combat poverty, end hunger and achieve social justice for marginalised and poor people in Asia and Africa”.
