Each of the following niche fintech concepts from Labs comes with a targeted customer affinity; a unique, customizable brand; data-driven business case; marketing strategy; full operational support; and playbook for continued growth:

Activate – Research shows that by 2024, 2.5 percent of all homes in the U.S. will have a solar installation. Activate makes getting a competitive solar loan quick and easy through its community of like-minded people who support the planet.

With indirect loans accounting for 34.4 percent of the credit union industry’s loan portfolio, lending in the residential solar market through Activate is a niche opportunity available now to support new and future indirect lending business growth.

Métier – The online creative business community is growing rapidly, including 4.6 million people sellers who plan to start a business within the next 6 months. This niche of entrepreneurs requires personalized financial flexibility and support to thrive. Métier empowers them to grow their business while meeting personal financial goals in a way that traditional banking cannot.

Prospr – The future of U.S. agriculture depends on the financial success of young and beginning farmers. This niche represents a massive opportunity to advance farms and families by equipping young farmers with tools to manage cash flow, providing access to capital and supporting profitable, sustainable agriculture businesses.
