Innovation To Take Center Stage at Upcoming Premier Fintech Showcase for Credit Union Industry

Des Moines (October 27, 2022)In an economic environment of increasing uncertainty, credit unions are looking to build greater stability for their futures. For many, that means finding financial technology solutions that give them a competitive edge – exactly what will be in the spotlight at VentureTech, the premier fintech showcase event for the credit union industry. This is the 5th year that the Curql Collective, a Credit Union Service Organization bringing innovation to the credit union industry, and CUNA Strategic Services (CSS) have partnered to bring VentureTech to the credit union industry.


Slated for November 7 – 9 at the Omni Frisco Hotel in Texas, VentureTech promises an exciting, curated lineup of fintech solutions designed to create a maximum impact for the credit union industry. VentureTech attendees will hear pitches from 16 fintech  who will share their transformative technology aimed at helping credit unions lend more efficiently, deepen member relationships, partner with members to solve problems, have easier access to data, and much more. A special launch party on November 8 will celebrate the solutions of an additional ten early-stage fintech launching from accelerators and offering tools that aim to resolve workflow issues, provide lending guidance, tap into younger prospect audiences, and more.


“A selection committee evaluated offerings from more than 50 fintech,” said Curql Collective CEO Nick Evens, co-founder of VentureTech. “Ultimately, the committee selected 16 companies for these coveted spots at VentureTech and 10 for our launch party. This event promises a great way to preview emerging technologies and early-stage incubator and accelerator companies to see what they have in store for the credit union industry. The final lineup of fintech for VentureTech is truly exciting.”


Jenny Jackson, sales distribution channel and alliance manager for CSS and co-founder of VentureTech, shares Nick’s enthusiasm for the lineup. “To be eligible to pitch at VentureTech, fintech companies had to demonstrate that their solutions would be transformative for credit unions and their members, demonstrate the product-market fit, and offer a clear, well-supported potential for growth,” she said. “We’re expecting anything but a normal pitch from this group!”


 Financial technology companies to present at VentureTech include Bank Social, Cinchy, Credit Mountain, Datava, Fintel Connect, Flow Networks, Goalsetter, LemonadeLXP, MessagePay, Nickels, Ranqx, Senso, TAPP Engine Inc., Uplinq, PayLane and Zirtue.
