NetGiver took top honors at NACUSO's Next Big Idea Competitio! This is the first year that the competition offered prize money - $7,500 for first place, and $2,500 for second place, courtesy of CO-OP Financial Services.
Each contestant is given 7 minutes to present and then the judges were given 8 minutes to ask questions with the audience ultimately the deciding the winner. And with over 125 attending they voted NetGiver as number one and Posh Technologies took second place.
Criteria for the Next Big Idea are initiatives to improve earnings, enhance member service, deliver new products and services to members and improve delivery channels to members. The innovations can be at various stages of development, including early stage and in need of investment, ready to be delivered or already in motion and are growing and changing the industry.
Earlier this year, MnCUN joined the ownership of NetGiver; a CUSO which enables fee-free charitable contributions exclusively for credit union members through a mobile giving platform.
