NYC Office of Financial Empowerment will be a BigIdeas Sponsor in the 2014 NYC BigApps competition! BigApps is a four-month competition, hosted by NYCEDC, that recruits the sharpest minds to solve New York City’s most pressing civic challenges through tech—with apps, devices and data tools. As a BigIdeas Sponsor, OFE has posed a challenge statement: Empower low-income New Yorkers to achieve financial goals and stay engaged in City programs through gamification.
