- Gain Industry Experience - By working on real problems and datasets you will learn how to deal with problems that come with practical implementation of theoretical approaches.
- Enjoy Yourself - These problems are meant to be challenging, but that only increases the satisfaction as you start making headway and rising up the leaderboard.

What’s the Challenge?

To complete the competition you will have to solve two problems:
The first problem is a time series prediction problem based on company fundamental data. The second is an NLP and information extraction problem.
Each problem and accompanying data set has been sourced from top firms and is a real problem they are/have faced. Not only will this competition allow you to prove your worth against other data scientists, it will give you invaluable experience working on real financial data sets (if you’re not familiar already).

How does the signup work?

To be considered for the NextAi accelerator you will have to leave details of your startup here and then head over to our competition platform to complete our data science problems. Once the competition has finished, the best companies will be asked to submit a bit more detail about their businesses. We will then notify the winner that they are being put forward.
