Do you have an innovative idea?
NACUSO in collaboration with Filene is bringing back our credit union “shark tank” experience of 5 of the best ideas in the marketplace for credit unions and/or CUSOs during our Annual Conference at DisneyWorld’s Yacht Club Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida on Tuesday, April 15. We are screening the ideas now for the ideas that will best help a credit union/CUSO:
- improve earnings and capital to support growth and returns to members
- enhance their member service
- deliver new products and/or services to their members
- improve delivery channels to their members.
We are looking for innovative ideas, some at the early stage of development that may need investment (an opportunity for those CUs or CUSOs who want to invest in new opportunities to help the industry), others that are ready to be delivered or implemented, and will help credit unions/CUSOs grow, deal with challenges or help better serve their member/owners. In the famous “shark tank” tradition, we will have 4 diverse, well known innovators as judges to ask questions of the winning innovators who are selected to present to attendees, as well as the attendees who will be able to ask the contestants questions. At the conclusion, attendees will be able to vote for the winner of the competition using their smart phone/iPad app, and more importantly talk with the innovative competitors in the reception immediately following the competition. To be considered, please complete the following questions. The deadline for submission is February 15, 2014.
NOTE: All information received will be kept confidential and we will return it to you at your request. We will select five (5) ideas to present and contact candidates by March 14, 2014. Chosen candidates will be given 10 minutes to present their ideas at the Annual Conference on April 15 and will have 10-15 minute Q&A with our panel of Judges, as well as potential questions from attendees at the conference
