About Us

This is what we're all about.

CU 2.0 is a digital consultancy and marketing agency with a mission to increase credit union market share through fintech partnerships.

At our core, we bring experience, passion, and a can-do attitude to the technology side of the credit union industry. We understand the importance of the credit union mission, community finance, and democratizing access to opportunity.
And we know how to throw a darn good party.

Our team brings an eclectic cocktail of strengths to the table.
