Join this hackathon and challenge yourself to harness data and technology to disrupt traditional financial analysis. Gather with diverse and innovative professionals and students. Work in teams and win cash for creative ideas.
CPAs offer a strong set of accounting and financial statement analysis skills required for today's complex and evolving business environment. Financial statements are the universal reporting tools which investors, banks, and other professionals use to evaluate a business. However, stakeholders are increasingly relying on non-traditional data, alongside environmental, social and governance (ESG) information to monitor and evaluate businesses, often in real-time. Therefore, traditional approaches to financial statement analysis must evolve to meet the expanding needs of these data-driven stakeholders.
Build a solution that incorporates both financial information and non-traditional data (e.g. customer reviews, social media sentiments, logistics data, climate impact, etc.) for investors and other stakeholders to evaluate and predict business performance.
