Fintech Partnering Chat: What’s the secret sauce?

August 3, 2022 // 12 pm CT

Join your operations and technology peers for this unique session, which will be a blend of presentation and discussion. Hear from an expert, then stay for the Chat to share ideas and learn from other credit unions.

First Ben Maxim, VP Digital Strategy & Innovation at MSUFCU and CTO of Reseda Group will share his perspective with us. Ben will cover:

  • Sourcing, Vetting, Onboarding Fintechs in The Lab at MSUFCU
  • MSUFCU’s Innovation Ecosystem including The Lab, Reseda Group CUSO and Fintech Partners
  • Key lessons learned in partnering with fintechs

Then we will open up the floor with some pre-selected questions (submit your ideas when you register!) and have a moderated discussion with Ben and Randy Stolp from our Technology Council Executive Committee. What has been working for you? What questions might you have for peers further along the road to partnering? What vendors have been successful to work with? We hope to explore these ideas and many more.

This session is Council member-only.  Only register if you are a current CUNA Councils member.  

Meet Your Moderators:
