Variable Ventures announces the “Venture Forth Competition” for all credit unions and CUSOs of the network.  This “Shark Tank” style competition will recognize the unique solutions and innovations that many of our network organizations have created to meet the challenges faced by their members and owners during the COVID- 19 situation.  The competition will also accept ideas, plans and projects that are being developed to lead us in the post-crisis period, after social distancing has ended and the “new normal” resumes.

Who Can Participate?

The competition is open to all CUs and CUSOs who are partnered and networked with the network. This includes CU*Answers, CU*NorthWest, CU*South, RKGoBig,  Xtend and eDoc Innovations.  The highly qualified judging panel will be comprised of the six network CEOs.

An award pool of $3,500 will be presented to the top 3 innovative ideas.  Award opportunities are as follows:

1st Place: $2,000

2nd Place: $1,000

3rd Place: $500

All ideas must be submitted online by 9:00 AM ET on October 1, 2020
