CSC Poland joined Startups challenge for the first time.

We have beneficiary experience for many employees who took an extra effort and engage in Start Up Challenge project form AML, ISG, MSS, TTS. They underline that in Citi we are working on Automations, Digitalization, RPA solutions. Therefore, to be involved in the Start Up challenge program and represent Citi as the main partner of Fintech Vertical, was a natural thing to do.
