One week left to deadline - keep going!

There is only one week left to enter your submission to the Formula 0001: Rapyd Fintech Grand Prix Hackathon.  Submissions are due before 5 PM ET on July 8th, 2021. Find out what time that is in your city.

Start your submission now

Starting a submission is a good way to make sure that your project meets the requirements. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. Remember: once you submit a project, you can keep editing it as needed at any time prior to the submission deadline. 

Prepare your video

Don’t forget: your submission must include a video showing your submission. Too often, participants leave this video to the last minute without realizing that it’s an important way to showcase your work for the judges.

Pro Tip: Don't wait until the last minute to upload your video. Due to file size, format, and your Internet connection, uploading a video to Facebook Video, YouTube, Vimeo, or Youku could take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. We cannot stress this enough! There have been many times a submission becomes ineligible due to errors with video rendering and uploading.

Reminder: Don’t forget to check out the office hours on the Slack channel: Tech Talk - June 24, 10 AM PT - 12 PM PT.
