Bring Emerging Technologies to Your Credit Union


Through betaSpace, NWCUA’s Strategic Link connects credit unions with financial technology startups looking to bring emerging technologies to credit unions. Strategic Link’s expertise in evaluating fintech startups makes it easier for credit unions to access the latest and best technologies, which helps them compete to fulfill consumer demands in the evolving financial services marketplace.

On Wednesday, Oct. 25, MAXX attendees can stop by Strategic Link’s special educational breakout session at 12:45 p.m. for an introduction to the latest technologies from some of our betaSpace partners. The session, titled “betaSpace Showcase: Compelling, Innovative, Emerging, Fin-Tech Solutions in the Marketplace” will cover a spectrum of solutions in artificial intelligence, personal financial management, compliance, and banking marijuana businesses.

You’ll hear from the following fintech companies:

  • Abe AI: The company’s platform enables financial institutions to create personalized and intelligent digital banking experiences within the invisible interfaces of voice devices and messaging apps.
  • Hypur: Hypur makes it possible to protect against financial crime in highly regulated markets, thereby diminishing the need for categorical de-risking of entire industries and opening the doors to new revenue opportunities.
  • Smarsh: The Archiving Platform from Smarsh helps you meet regulatory retention and monitoring compliance obligations by capturing all your digital content and advertising, including social media and web.
  • LifeCounts: HowellCorp’s primary financial technology project, called LifeCounts, is an online service allowing consumers to securely view their various financial accounts in one place and receive proactive notifications and insights about their money.
