Financial Technology

Innovation in financial services have just begun to come through, but this field is different than others. The challenge is not only in providing newer and more innovative services that either benefits a customer or helps investors and banker make better decisions. The challenge is also in securing these systems from the ever growing numbers of vulnerabilities and from the malicious intent of wrong doers. If you can build new and innovative financial solutions, while building a cyber fort knox, then Fintech needs you.


There used to be a time where the common cold could cause an epidemic. And today, we’ve eradicated malaria and are on the path to finding cures to cancer and AIDS. While direct medical sciences have contributed to most of its advancements, recent years have seen computer sciences compliment it very well. Be it in aggregating services of every doctor in a locality, or a simple application with quick remedies for ailments - the tech party has landed in the healthcare space. Think of how technology can compliment the current healthcare infrastructure.


Our day-to-day work lives have become so dependent on suite of productivity tools that help save time and increase our overall work output. From emails to cloud file storage to offline/online messaging, the world of productivity apps have evolved with changing times. Still a whole lot of them suffer from a brisk fragmentation and incompatibility issues. A simplified, seamless experience for all such apps would be ideal for most professionals and consumers alike.
