Santander is a partner of Kingston University and provides funds for scholarships, mobility grants, internships, support to entrepreneurs and other activities. This year Santander is launching a new initiative across the UK and would like recent graduates and current students to take part.
It's called Big Ideas and through it Santander wants to engage with Kingston University talent (students and graduates from the past five years) to find out what you would like your bank of the future to look like. If you are creative, good at problem solving and have a great idea that will shape the future of the financial industry, then Santander wants to hear from you.
The competition is very simple.
Santander has picked three 3 challenges that they would like to pose to you:
The future of semantic search
Semantic search could be a great tool to help us digest customer data. Help them understand how.
The future of digital authentication
If someone had told you 10 years ago that, in the future, you'd be able to unlock your phone with your fingerprint, would you have believed them? What do you think is next?
The future of virtual banking
Virtual reality is the seamless transition from the physical to the virtual world. How can Santander use it to improve their customer experience?
You will have to provide solutions to these challenges ensuring that they fit within a certain criteria.
Santander has up to £20,000 to give away as part of the Big Ideas challenge. Entries will be judged on creativity, feasibility, viability, innovation and credibility.
Whilst the financial prize is available, finalists will also be given the opportunity to:
