beyond plasticDo 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 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 offered the opportunity to work with Visa Collab to develop the idea to a potential product or service! 

You will also have the opportunity to:

  • Meet and network with members of the Visa Europe 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
