Ignite FI Forum is a market validation, growth, and enablement invitational held several times a year in which credit unions can help shape the future of services for their members. Credit unions can participate in market-fit sessions and directly help founders better fit their offerings. Credit unions can also participate in funding or advising for up and coming startups wanting to service the industry.
Kindling sessions are specially designed to bring a founding team and a small group of credit union executives together to help them shape their products for the unique needs of credit unions. Many times these sessions lead to robust relationships that end with highly effective offerings for members with well designed products and aligned founders.
Campfire sessions bring together startups that have shown traction and are on a growth trajectory needing capital and advisors to help them grow. Campfire is where credit union senior executives and startups join to enable market penetration and scaling up deployments through advice, understandings of various CUSO groups and conferences, and more.
Participants in Forum also receive complimentary 1-year access to the Ignite FI Forum Online Community. Anyone can join the community and help collaborate with founders and other credit unions interested in join-investing, or simply advising founding teams. Founders can gain access to credit union employees, seek advice and guidance, and better shape products and services to the industry.
