A $100,000 Prize Purse. Startup Cash. Tech Resources. Expert Consult. FinCapDev is a mobile app development competition that helps millions of underserved Americans make smarter financial choices and achieve better access to financial services. It is a community of developers, technologists, financial service firms, venture capitalists, engineers, non-profit organizations, entrepreneurs, businesspeople, students, advisors, marketers, designers—and perhaps you—working together in ways otherwise unexpected in the pursuit of building new mobile apps that help the underserved.
FinCapDev is administered by the D2D Fund and the Center for Financial Services Innovation. The competition is made possible through the generous support of the Ford Foundation, the Citi Foundation, and the MetLife Foundation.
