OAB is delighted to launch its first “Innovation Hub” for students, professionals (fintechs, start-ups and IT professionals) and employees.

This first-of-its-kind innovation platform in Oman gives young and professional innovators the opportunity to showcase their solutions (in the form of a prototype) around specific themes that will be communicated to registered participants two weeks before the event. You will have 24hrs to develop your prototypes on the Bank’s premises using any innovative technology, platform, framework, language, or hardware device you require. You will then need to present your prototype to a panel of judges.

One winner/team will be selected from each category:

1. The Students’ Challenge

You will have the opportunity to join the first Innovation Lab in the banking industry to develop your ideas and work on other innovative solutions for the bank with potential paid internship and employment opportunities.

2. The Professionals’ Challenge

OAB will sign a partnership agreement with the winning professional team to develop and implement the innovation for the bank or its participating partners.


The Students’ Challenge

Banking for Millennials, show us what you’d like your banking experience to look like, by either building on an existing product/service or creating a new one that would enhance our customers’ experience, or shape our digital economy and payment solutions or any other crazy idea.

The Professionals’ Challenge

Unleash the power of Open Banking to create new customer experiences, revenue models and industry ecosystems. Your challenge is to showcase a unique and innovative use case around this theme.

All you need to do is register yourself and team members (up to 5 per team) on this page to take part and we will get in touch with more details.

And if that’s not enough, we will provide a generous supply of refreshments, food, activities and fantastic giveaways throughout the day.
