Following the success of our Female FinTech Competition in 2019 Atos, Deutsche Bank and Google are holding a new competition for Female FinTechs to join our FinTech Community. It is a great opportunity to get visibility for your unique business idea and network with your peers!
FinTechs with a female founder or female/s in the top management group.
We also encourage other women who would like to be a business coach to register for the competition. We will match you with a FinTech entrant so you can bring your industry and / or technical knowledge and experience to their business and contribute to their success.
The competition requires some very basic steps. First, submit your idea for a FinTech innovation on this form. The judging panel will select a set of finalists from those submissions. The selected finalists will prepare a business plan and present it to the judging panel for a final round of prizes and awards.
1st prize: Join the Atos FinTech program.
Excellence award: Any FinTech with a brilliant business case will spend the day with an Atos industry expert and visit our FinTech Lab.
Equivalent prizes will be provided by Deutsche Bank and Google!
Dates & Deadlines:
23 September: Submission deadline declaring participating in the competition as either a FinTech or coach for a FinTech.
30 September: Business case submission deadline
15 October: Short list of FinTechs finalists announced
29 October: Competition held virtually on Google Meet.
Writing a business plan:
Writing a winning business plan requires you to consider:

- Your customer and the addressable market
- Meeting the objectives of your external resource providers
(in this case the Atos FinTech Community)
- Your internal proposition
- You - as the leader and founder - and your team
- Your technology and creative product
Details on the Atos FinTech Community:
At Atos we favor FinTech that fit with our go-2-market strategy and industry solutions. This is largely so that we can assign an owner on our side to help mentor and support our FinTech, that they can be readily incorporated into our end-to-end client solutions and thus ensure that the FinTech is presented to the maximum number of our clients. The focus areas for us are:
- Customer experience (e.g. digital assistant, digital banking, mobile payments and wallet)
- Business reinvention (e.g. loan utility, IOT, blockchain, instant payments)
- Operational excellence (e.g. digital workplace, cloudification)
- Trust & compliance (e.g. cyber security, trusted authentication, e-identify)
The benefits of the Atos FinTech community are significant for both parties – for you, gaining access to our clients is enormous. We serve 13 of the largest 20 banks globally and 15 of the largest 30 insurance organizations.
But we also help FinTechs develop their offerings further by introducing them to our Atos Financial Services Sandbox. Here we combine solutions between Atos and the FinTech, test, create a demo and work on the go to market to then take the solution our clients. We have 16000 banking experts and 5000 insurance experts at Atos – all of which can help you accelerate your start up!
