The inaugural CU2VIP-Live event will become a Woodstock like meeting in this sense: yes, hundreds of thousands went to Woodstock but if you asked for a show of hands of those who were there be ready to count well into the millions.
Five years from now many will say, yes, I was there at the first CU2VIP-Live event.
We were actually there and what you will be hearing this week are snippets of short talks with participants - who also were there.
The first episode: Martin Walker with NextLevel Ventures with its $250 million-plus venture fund for investments in fintech oriented CUSOs that will bring next gen tech to the credit union industry.
The big idea: to stay competitive with mega banks and fintechs credit unions have to up their technology game.
The better idea: by investing in early stage fintechs credit unions can get a sizable jump on the market and just maybe will gain competitive advantages.
Keep listening and you will also hear why Walker attended CU2VIP-Live and what he got out of it.
