The Lab at Filene gets you answers to the questions that matter most.
The Lab Explained
The Lab is Filene’s ongoing platform for testing new tools, products, and strategic solutions for their potential to help credit unions grow and deepen their impact. Each year, The Lab works with a group of credit union sponsors and stakeholders to select and execute a set of “quick and nimble” tests identified through Filene’s research and market engagement.
The Lab’s efficient and collaborative approach to testing yields actionable insights to support the adoption of proven solutions and expand credit unions’ capacity for innovation.
The Lab goes beyond idea generating and takes questions and new ideas emerging from Filene’s Centers of Excellence and communities and returns actionable insights and solutions for credit unions to put into action in real and tangible ways.
