Looking for new ways to deliver the news to you, we decided to take our camera on the giant floor of Fintech Meetup's speed meetings to share with you what it was like hanging out with 3,000+ other fintechies.
We did a bunch of these and one of our first on-the-floor interviews was with Michigan State University Federal Credit Union's (MSUFCU) Chief Digital Strategy and Innovation Officer Ben Maxim. We discussed his experience being at Fintech Meetup representing his credit union, vetting thousands of meetup requests from fintechs at the event. And that's the beauty of this event; you are in control of who you want to meet with for your 15-minute meeting.
Ben also discussed some of the very cool initiatives they have going at MSUFCU, such as Collegiate and AlumniFi -- two digital credit unions serving college students and alumni. We also talked about the Reseda Group that invests/partners with up-and-coming fintech-ish companies looking to serve credit unions. There is a lot going on at MSUFCU these days.
