Financial Innovation Lab Malaysia, funded by the MetLife Foundation, is running the B40 Challenge to find solutions that could drive usage of financial services by lower and middle income customers in Malaysia (or the B40 population) beyond access to bank accounts.
18 teams from fintech start-ups are working with UNCDF to develop and refine innovative new solutions. They’re attending Bootcamps to learn and apply the design thinking process, working with our mentors and partners from Bank Negara and MDEC amongst other companies, and engaging in our online community of practice.
The last bootcamp for our B40 Challenge will be happening at MyFinTech Week on the 17th – 18th June. On the 19th June the top five teams pitch their ideas to a panel of world-leading finance and technology experts. Join us at FinTech week to see which three teams will be selected to receive up to 100,000 USD in funding and long-term support from UNCDF to commercialize and scale-up their products
