“K1’s investment in Eltropy comes at a pivotal time, with an increasing need for financial institutions to provide a secure, compliant way to digitally interact with their customers,” said Christian Grant, Vice President at K1. “Over the past year, Eltropy has seen a mass adoption of its solution as customers seek a way to automate historically manual communication and workflow tasks.

Commitment to Credit Unions

Both additional investors, the Curql Fund and CMFG Ventures, are credit union-specific venture capital funds, reaffirming Eltropy’s commitment to the industry.

The mission of CMFG Ventures, the investment arm of CUNA Mutual Group, is to identify and invest in the next generation of like-minded entrepreneurs to help CUNA Mutual Group continue its focus on serving credit unions and their members.

Curql Fund, managed by Next Level Ventures, is the only fund of its kind serving as a gateway between FinTech and credit unions. With investors including 30 of the nation’s largest credit unions, this is the first investment for the fund.

“Our investments focus on collaboration between FinTech companies and credit unions to improve how members experience their credit unions. Eltropy’s solution to bridge communications channels became a natural fit,” said Nick Evens, investment committee member for Curql Fund. “We’ve had our eye on Eltropy’s technology for some time, and its ability to make a real impact by innovating through a digital communication platform is what we would like to cultivate and grow not only for the fund, but our initiatives to create value for both the FinTech and our credit union investors in Curql Collective.”

“This investment once again proves the value of Eltropy’s product within the credit union ecosystem,” said Barbra L. Lowman, president of CUNA Strategic Services (CSS). CSS named Eltropy the Best Text Messaging Solution for Credit Unions in 2019. “Eltropy has consistently shown it is committed to helping credit unions provide the best member experience with its digital communication platform. CSS is honored to partner with Eltropy as they continue to increase their growing footprint within the credit union industry and beyond.”
