Allevo Newsletter

In this issue of our newsletter we invite you to find out what was like at EBAday 2014, how useful it is to get involved in the FinTech industry startup community, about the experience of a FinTP contributor on GitHub, how Tesla Motors sets an unprecedented example for the open source mentality among carmakers and how is that encouraging for companies like us who have adopted a new business model to accommodate porting our products to open source, about Kosta Peric’s belief that innovative technology can address the lack of access to basic financial services for billions of people, and many other interesting topics.

Allevo, FinTP and the Innotribe Startup Challenge

The Innotribe Startup Challenge is a global competition SWIFT runs for finding the best startups in the FinTech industry, to bring them closer to banks. This is the second year we produce this program together with the Innotribe team, looking at over 280 companies that applied for the competition. Industry experts carefully selected from Innotribe’s network help review and evaluate these companies, acting as the program’s judges and coaches. 

How did I start contributing to FinTP on GitHub: a personal experience

It all started with the challenge of finding the best sharing, and versioning environment that will best accommodate our needs for building a strong and creative community around FinTP product. This would have to allow collaboration among a large number of scattered contributors. Finally, out of the hat there was our rabbit, GitHub!
Using Git is awesome and it aims at making your work as smooth as possible. It is probably one of the best tools supporting large worldwide communities sharing the same interests in a collaborative environment.
