• entrepreneurs
• the disabled
• low-cost housing residents (PPR)

• those financially impacted by COVID-19

Participants will explore financial inclusion frameworks as well as research and analyse global case studies. They will then use design thinking to ideate and build prototypes guided by mentors who are experts in the industry.

The challenge is open to all Malaysian individuals aged 18 to 30 years old, particularly those who are currently studying, working or have high interest in Fintech, Economics, Finance, Shariah Law, Islamic Finance, Public Policy and Actuarial Science.
