FinLab and the Financial Health Network have given us an unparalleled opportunity to work with executives from the largest banks in the country, along with government and regulatory bodies. This access has been phenomenal as it has allowed Digit to be involved in conversations directly impacting the future of fintech.
Ethan Bloch Founder and CEO About Digit
I wish we had known about the Financial Health Network [and FinLab] earlier on. It would have helped us get to market quicker and we could have benefited from their knowledge of the space early on.
Jason Wilk Founder and CEO About Dave.com
FinLab has been an incredible help to our business and I've been raving about the program to everyone I know. When we looked at many other accelerator programs the value proposition seemed to be mostly around generic best practices for building a new software business, a small initial amount of capital to get things going and access to future investors. I think where FinLab really stands out is in providing all of those things and very specific and difficult to find expertise around financial regulation.
Alex Marlantes Co-Founder and CEO About Everlance
The Lab was instrumental in helping us grow our business and providing the expert insights we needed to expand our solution to more underserved consumers. In fact, the newest iteration of our product was inspired by collaboration we developed through FinLab.
