BECU FinTech Incubator Competition Selects Two New Winners

Written by CoMotion Staff / May 30, 2019

This July, CoMotion welcomes two new startups to the BECU FinTech Incubator: Attunely and Fincluziv. The two startups were chosen by BECU following a competition and series of pitches based on their compatibility with BECU’s business goals and digital product focus areas.

“BECU is excited to have Attunely and Fincluziv join the BECU FinTech Incubator at CoMotion Labs,” said Lee Harris, Director, Affinity Partnerships at BECU. “Attunely machine learning Accounts Receivable solution is one that could create a better customer experience, which fits with BECU’s member first approach. Fincluziv, solution for salary advances, fits BECU’s focus on financial health and lowering financial stresses.”

These new members complete the first cohort for the BECU FinTech Incubator, joining Routable (formerly Warren) and Noonum.

BECU, Washington’s largest community credit union, partnered with CoMotion last fall to launch the fintech incubator. Startups invited to join receive sponsored CoMotion memberships that include access to training and mentorship as well as access to BECU and their networks.

With the goal of driving innovation in the financial services space, the collaboration is a powerful combination of BECU’s expertise in financial services, data analysis, and customer experience, and CoMotion’s strengths in incubation, innovation, company formation, and technology commercialization.
