All Go for Unionbank’s First U:HAC In Manila And Cebu


The Unionbank Hackathon and Convention (U:HAC) is UnionBank’s latest project to look for the most creative and innovative solutions in the digital arena that can be developed during the event.   

U:HAC will first be held in Cebu on August 6 & 7, 2016 with about 200 participants consisting of college students and professionals.  A Space Cebu will be the venue partner for the 24-hour coding marathon or hackathon.


The second leg will be held on August 27 & 28, 2016 at the Megatrade Hall 3, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.

UnionBank has been at the forefront of the digital revolution being experienced in the local banking sector. It is one of the first Banks in the country that embraced digital early on in its operations given its goal of becoming a fully digitized Bank that provides SmartBanking to all of its customers.


Innovation is a key component of the Bank’s business as it is continuously searching for solutions to challenge convetions.  

“We want to discover talented individuals, be it college students or professionals, that have superior knowledge on information technology, and software applications, who can contribute in making the digital arena more progressive and advanced based on their digital solutions,” UnionBank Senior Vice President and Human Resource Director Michelle Rubio emphasized.


Registration for those interested to join (Junior and Senior College Students, Professionals) is still open. Just visit the UHAC website at or check its Facebook page at for updates. You may also contact Econnext Ideas and Media at 0917-9048777 or 0920-9734926.

The U:HAC Cebu is organized in partnership with A Space Cebu, PLDT Innolab and IPC.

  1. I can tell my friends abouy this :)

  2. I recently read about Unionbank's partnership with Get Go. Now they have another event but Cebu-based. I'm glad that education is one of their advocacy. Hoping for it's success.

  3. This is a nice project by Unionbank... I do patronize this bank.. i think i have been using my Eon Card for like 9 years already and same thin goes with their VISA features...thanks for sharing this event! too bad Cebu is way too far from my place

  4. It's nice that they are doing this. As one of their clients, I really appreciate the digital services that they offered early on. In fact, I believe Unionbank was one of the first few banks to allow electronic linking with Paypal. I have been a client since!

  5. A very nice initiative by Union Bank. This will help them get so many new minds aboard!

  6. Oooh, I see more and more companies capitalizing on hackaton events to discover raw talent, especially from the student force. It's a good way to source qualified candidates, I just hope they get paid well haha.
