Microsoft Teams, has been chosen as the official software for the campaign. It enables participants to chat, meet, call, collaborate and co-create on one single platform. Each team could enjoy online communication and collaboration functions by accessing the software anywhere, anytime. FINSPIRE starts its “Hack from home” initiative through utilizing this technology, empowering its participants to co-create digitally at their preferred location and time, allowing them to continue to put their creativity into action.
