The winners included Hello bank!, the first mobile, digital and European bank; Habit@t, a new generation of home insurance developed by BNP Paribas Cardif Italy; the “Social Entrepreneurship” group of projects launched by the retail banking networks in France, Italy and Belgium, which offer tailored support and assistance to social entrepreneurs; “Igotowka”, a 100% digital online personal loan app developed by BNP Paribas Personal Finance Poland; and “iPad Innovation” from TEB Cetelem in Turkey, a solution that makes it possible to offer personalised, simplified loans as part of the purchase of a vehicle.
The awards ceremony was held on 7 October, at the Place de l’Opéra branch in Paris. This contest is fully in line with BNP Paribas’ positioning as “The bank for a changing world”, which has a deep commitment to innovation.
