ING invites teams to impact finance at Global WebVR Hackathon

In November 2016, ING joined the Global WebVR Hackathon run by Virtuleap, an online platform that applies this method for a mass targeted impact on the virtual reality (VR) industry. Technology partners like Mozilla, Google and Microsoft have joined the collective effort to support WebVR as a priority to jumpstarting the industry.

ING participates with a sponsored challenge that runs in parallel as a special micro-hackathon, where teams from around the world are invited to explore the tricky topic of how VR can impact the finance industry.

"ING’s strategy is to unlock innovation for our clients through co-creation," says Ivar Wiersma, head of Innovation at ING Wholesale Banking. "We expect to unlock some of the promise of WebVR for the financial service industry so we can take client experience in banking to the next level."
