Visa Design Jam: Beyond Plastic - Off the rack, On the road



Do you want to improve the way people pay for things?

Have you ever had a bad experience with paying for something and thought surely there's a simpler, more convenient and easier way? Then join us for;Off the rack, On the road; our upcoming Design Jam, hosted in partnership with Visa Europe Collab , where we will be exploring the future of payments across retail and transport.

How does it work?

You will need to apply first, either as a team or an individual. Once you have been accepted you will be invited to participate. The event follows a schedule which aims to deliver ideas from conception through to pitching to a board of judges. We will have mentors and advisors on board to help develop
your ideas and take you through the process of design and innovation.  

Friday (18.15 - 21.00) Introduction to the challenge and team formation
Saturday (8.30 - 21.00) Understanding the problem, ideation, field research and prototyping
Sunday (8.30 - 14.00) Pitching to judges

Who are we looking for? 

You don’t need to be an expert in payments, we are looking for teams and individuals who have great ideas and a talent for innovation! 

Why should I enter?

Apart from it being an awesome weekend full of learning, innovation and creation, the winning team will be awarded £1000 and the opportunity to work with Visa Europe Collab to further develop the idea into a potential product or service!

You will also have the opportunity to:

  • Meet and network with members of the Visa Europe Collab team
  • Receive mentoring and advice from industry experts
  • Get support from City University London to incubate your idea
  • For the winning team, receive support and mentoring from Visa Europe to turn your idea into a fully functioning prototype
