We are calling all ambitious, tech-minded disruptors to enter our Pathfinders Challenge. This open collective of innovators, inventors and idealists is dedicated to generating and perfecting the ideas that will revolutionise how the financial services industry interacts with the customer of the future.


Although we consistently drive, test and develop new concepts in-house, we are now inviting the public to participate in this process by presenting ideas, product demos or proven technologies that are designed to change or improve the financial services industry.


The 20 finalist “Pathfinders” stand a chance of winning a share of R500 000 in cash prizes, additional development and business support, dedicated coaching and mentoring, and the opportunity to commercialise and scale their solutions with help from Standard Bank.


Anyone with a viable idea can enter, not just established businesses; the Pathfinders Challenge encourages submissions in three categories:

  • Early-stage idea/concept
  • Start-up/prototypes
  • Established/proven technology.


For more information, FAQs, terms and conditions and to enter, please visit


Entries close at 23H59 on 31 October.
