RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (3/12/13)--CO-OP Financial Services has named three finalists for its CO-OP THINK Prize 13, a competition to inspire innovative solutions to the issues confronting the credit union industry.

The three finalists and their business plan titles include:

  • Andree Kirk, Online Services Administrator, San Francisco (Calif.) FCU, San Francisco, Calif.: "Shared Member Application Platform;" and
  • Deborah Larson, Branch Manager, Dakota Plains CU, Enderlin, N.D.: "Switch Kit App."
The three finalists were selected from among 25 semi-finalists by judges from CO-OP Financial Services and Filene Research Institute. The winner of the CO-OP THINK Prize 13 will be announced May 2 at the THINK 13 in Chicago.

The winner will be determined based on scoring by the CO-OP Financial Services and Filene Research Institute judges; online voting by credit union employees March 26-April 19, and on-site voting by registered THINK 13 Conference attendees.

CO-OP Financial Services will be working with the finalists to produce a video that helps the entrants to explain their idea. This video will be made available on the THINK website for the online voting period and shown at the THINK 13 Conference.
