NYC[x] Moonshot: Financial Inclusion Challenge - in the last week I got contacted by Jen of the NYC Mayor’s Office of the CTO about this programme that I found particularly interesting and decided to include some info here. They’re looking for bold, innovative solutions that address the multifaceted barriers unbanked and underbanked New Yorkers in the Bronx and across New York City face and facilitate building community wealth and sustainable economic opportunities. You can showcase your solution to potential partners and win up to $20k. The deadline to apply is Sept 20! More details here: nyc.gov/financialchallenge
