Citi® Tech for Integrity Challenge (T4I)




Citi® Tech for Integrity Challenge (T4I) is a global initiative to invite and encourage technology innovators from around the world to create solutions to help public sector entities increase transparency and promote integrity. With the support of its strategic allies including LTP, Microsoft, Mastercard, IBM and PwC, Citi is seeking to source tech solutions that promote global integrity across eight pillars:


Government Transactions


Culture, Ethics, and Engagement


Information, security and identity


Crisis Management and Aid


Cutting the Red Tape


Analytics, Reporting, and transparency


Financial Crimes and Illicit Activities





T4I is open to entries from all over the world. Both start-ups and mature technology corporates are welcome. If you’re chosen to participate at Demo Days, a working prototype must be showcased.

Type of engagement:
Open Innovation Challenge
Main sponsors:
Let's Talk Payments, IBM, Microsoft, Mastercard, PwC
Incentive for startups

Enhancing the efficiency of national government is a critical step in building an innovative nation. Federal structures in developing and developed countries are equally interested in supporting the entrepreneurial community. But the results of such support can be fully realized only if entrepreneurs seek a goal wider than a financial performance and bring the results of their work into the public sector. By applying advanced technology in the public sector, startups contribute to building a conducive environment with transparent infrastructures and enhanced opportunities to starts and grow a business.
