Overview

Once a team of 2 people in 2015, Zeta became a unicorn in May 2021 after it secured a $250 million investment from SoftBank, increasing its valuation to $1.45 Billion. Now an organization of over 1,000 people, with a presence in 9 countries and a customer base in 35 countries, we still remember our humble beginnings.
All Unicorns were at some point an open-source project with developers from across the world driving innovation. With Zeta hacks 3.0, we are looking to fan the flames of innovation and help you create your fintech revolution!

Technologies such as mobile banking, mobile payment, and biometrics have changed how many consumers interact with their banks and financial institutions every day.
