More about the Greenback Hackathon 2021

Amid a global economic crisis triggered by the pandemic, remittances have become more important than ever for low- and middle-income families. Yet sourcing and channeling them has become increasingly difficult given increased unemployment and limited mobility. In such circumstances, identifying the most efficient services and saving on costs is crucial for migrants and their families.

To  address these challenges, the Greenback Hackathon 2021 will bring together the best of talent in information technology (IT) and finance from Bosnia and Herzegovina to build suitable solutions for Bosnian migrants and their families.
