This third edition took place in three cities: Madrid, Lisbon and Paris.

During three days, participants joined forces to imagine new services to meet customers needs. With this edition of SPARK by RCI Bank and Services, nearly 13% of our employees have been trained in agile working methods.

On the first day, all of the participants voted which ideas to develop after a pitch session. 24 ideas were selected and the same number of teams were formed. During the second day, mentors gave advice and questioned the teams to help them pivot[1] their idea if necessary. On the last day, each team pitched in front of juries made up of member of the Group’s top management as well as external juries comprising startup founders.

And now? Each winning project will have the opportunity to be trialed within the RCI Bank and Services ecosystem.
