CUCollaborate™ launches “Credit Union Match” kickstarter project

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 4, 2015) — CUCollaborate™ is pleased to announce the launch of their “Credit Union Match” Kickstarter Project.

The project asks for support from consumers, credit unions, and credit union partners to help fund the development of a new consumer-facing website. The website would be different from existing industry consumer websites as it would provide consumers with information only on credit unions they are eligible to join rather than simply providing them with a list of credit unions with branches nearby.

CUCollaborate hopes that Credit Union Match can serve as the foundation for a sustainable, well-funded collaborative marketing campaign in the near future. The website will be able to provide direct leads to credit unions or even populate consumers’ information into online account opening platforms if their Kickstarter hits the stretch goal of raising $100,000.

CUCollaborate plans to develop the website and search engine and then share the tool for free with any organization interested in hosting the search engine on its website. By creating one platform that can be easily adopted by others, CUCollaborate believes that Credit Union Match can unify and facilitate additional collaboration within the industry.

Sam Brownell founded CUCollaborate in April of 2014. Before founding CUCollaborate, Brownell served as Associate Vice President of Product and New Market Development at Callahan & Associates located in Washington, D.C.
