ZU Capital: Updates & Opportunities for Co-op Members


What are we talking about?

  • Capital Circle worked through the WeFunder referral backlog, now turning its gaze to other crowd investing partner platforms
  • working on ideas to support capital innovators in the co-op; they are currently gathered in a MN group, and we have begun systematic outreach to design some support services for them
  • Developing a paid “capital navigation” offering for co-op members, to begin building towards a more fully fledged referral ecosystem
  • Getting ready to launch our Lend4Good partnership, will be looking for suitable deal we can feature from amongst co-op members
  • Kicking of a collaborative design process with key stakeholders in the co-op capital world in the US, to create one or more new financial vehicles and products that help us funnel more capital to companies like ZU Co-Op.
