Overview of Kotak REIGN – REImaGiNe the way we bank

Kotak Reign Challenge 2021: Kotak Mahindra Bank is one of India’s leading banking and financial services groups, offering a wide range of financial services that encompass every sphere of life. The explosion of digital media has changed the way customers live and bank. We’re not just adapting to this change but anticipating it and staying one step ahead. It all begins with our people and with a work culture designed for new-age banking.

With REIGN, we invite students to REImaGiNe the way we bank! We aim to bring the best student minds in India together and identify ideas and solutions that reimagine banking to create a rewarding and delightful experience every day for our customers. Spanning across two stages, the competition requires students to build a prototype of the Idea/solution on any one of the five problem tracks. 

You stand an opportunity to work on industry redefining problems, meet seasoned professionals and thought leaders, and a chance to win attractive prizes!

As people switch to proactive measures to improve their financial lives from saving to spending, can you innovate a way to help make a budget, invest, and buy stocks and reimagine banking for Personal Finance Management?

> Track 4: Reimagine how we can use voice as a feature for banking

Voice banking is poised to have a significant impact on the future of banking with companies big and small competing, old and new, competing to attract and retain customers within their voice-powered ecosystems. Can you reimagine voice features for personal banking in this age?
