The selected fintech companies will be provided direct entry into ‘IFSCA Regulatory/Innovation Sandbox.’ The selected applicants “will also get an opportunity to showcase their solution or product during the Flagship FinTech Forum of IFSCA” scheduled in December. The Regulatory Sandbox will provide the fintech entities with facilities to experiment with proposed solutions in a live set-up with a limited set of real-time customers.
I-Sprint’21 includes a series of hackathons involving problem statements across various financial services such as on-machine readable and enforceable regulations, unified know-your-customer solutions, retail banking products, etc. According to a statement from GIFT City, the problem statements “have been framed to solve the business problems related to banking units at GIFT IFSC and to promote retail business for the banking units at GIFT IFSC.”
