Oman Arab Bank’s Innovation Hub is back and coming to you. Join Oman’s first 24-hr virtual hackathon.

We are passionate about innovation. This is why we have invited students, professionals/Fintechs and employees to join us to collaborate and develop new and innovative solutions together.

The first Innovation Hub took place in 2019 and was a huge success. Over 350 individuals participated and produced innovative POCs in just 24hrs, nine students joined our innovation internship programme, and four were offered employment opportunities at the Bank.

This year’s virtual Innovation Hub is even bigger and better. The winning student team will join a 6-month paid Innovation Internship at OAB, an attractive cash prize, and potential employment opportunities with the Bank. The winning Fintech/Professional will have the opportunity to win a cash prize and collaborate with the Bank to bring their ideas to life.

This year’s themes are tourism, cybersecurity and Fintech. From the three categories of participants – students, Fintech/professionals and OAB employees – a winning team will be announced for each.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to be innovative, collaborate with other innovators and learn from others.

Winner prizes and benefits:

  • Cash prizes
  • Six-month paid innovation internship programme for students
  • Potential employment opportunities at the Bank
  • Opportunity to collaborate with the Bank to bring your idea to life
  • Receive a certificate at the end of the Hackathon (Huge plus on your CV!)
