Idea Garage Open Banking

When 20th - 22nd May 2019

Where Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius

  • Overview
  • Agenda
  • Dare to change with Open Banking

    Luminor, Garage 48 and Mooncascade will bring to you event series which help you to change the future of banking.

    The idea is to organize three Idea Garages on Open Banking: one in Tallinn, one in Riga and one in Vilnius.

    Why are we doing this? Open Banking is on the verge of shifting banking, just like the way internet banking did a decade ago. Simply put, the general intention of the concept is to enable third-party developers to build applications and services around financial institutions’ data and ensure greater financial transparency.

    Although many banks are losing their initial enthusiasm and are backing out, Luminor is still brimming with confidence and pushing for the bright future of Open Banking.

    Don’t settle for the norm. We’ll give you the keys to determine the tomorrow of banking. #daretochange

    The aim and ambition of the Idea Garages Open Banking Powered by Luminor, is to go back to the very roots of Open Banking-  by opening up their API’s and giving a chance for everyone to shape and model banking towards their needs.

    👉The event series Idea Garages Open Banking Powered by Luminor, wants to bring together people from all over the Baltics, who are seeking to disrupt the current logic of offered digital banking services by creating a new realm of actually needed functionalities. We are looking for developers, designers, data specialists, marketers, passionate project managers, business masterminds and banking professionals!


    👉 Idea Garage is not your regular workshop, where people gather together, talk a lot and then go home and forget about it. It is a much-needed gathering, where initial ideas will mature and get ready to enter the next stage. At the end of the day, the best will be chosen and they can continue with a follow-up program by Luminor intended to validate the ideas in real life.

    👉 Through intense brainstorming, different expertise and top-notch mentors, a lot can be done in a day. What might be a daunting task alone, can be easily done together!

    Don’t worry if you can’t join us in Tallinn, hop on a bus and travel with us to Riga or Vilnius, as we’re on the road for 3 consecutive days :)
