Silvur was named Best of Show at VentureTech, the premier fintech showcase event for the entire credit union industry held in Las Vegas, November 10 and 11.
“Fourteen fintech companies from around the country eagerly pitched their solutions to accredited investors and a who’s who of credit union industry executives,” said CSS Sales Distribution Channel & Alliance Manager and event co-founder Jenny Jackson. “The showcase strives to minimize geographical barriers, improve collaboration, provide an avenue for investment and build lasting relationships among investors in the industry.”
After two days of pitches, Silvur was chosen as Best of Show for their app designed to support Americans aged 50+ navigating modern retirement. “Tens of millions of credit union members are embarking on a retirement that looks very different than their parents. We're thrilled to partner with credit unions to provide members a financial wellness toolkit that helps them confidently navigate some of the most consequential health and wealth decisions of their lifetime. Together we will ensure that credit union members retire fearlessly!” said Rhian Horgan, founder and CEO of Silvur.
