Our Purpose:


Make banking better, for customers and for banks.


Our Mission:

We select fearless community bank leaders to join our community. As active collaborators, our members enjoy network effects that can accelerate innovation, build partnerships, and make strategic investments.


Our Vision:


Level the playing field for community and mid-size banks, helping them provide products and services that make their customers’ lives better, helping these banks thrive and enrich their communities.

We look at money differently, around the edges–beyond the transaction to its real connection with the people who earn and spend it. Our livelihood is building lives.

We want to reinvent banking, not just replumb it.


Our Operating Principles:


  • Action > Talk: The answers are outside the building

  • Continuous Improvement:  There is no finish line

  • Data > Opinions:  Strong opinions, loosely held

  • Exploration Before Execution: Nail it, then scale it

  • Agility > Plans: Progress will not be linear

  • Technology is Just a Tool:  Strategy first, technology second

Our Values:


We love hearing loud voices, common pitfalls, off-the-wall ideas.  When we share, we learn. When we learn, we can build unique strategies. When we strategize, we jumpstart action.

  • Collaboration

  • Innovation

  • Differentiation

  • Inclusion

  • Financial Wellness

  • Stakeholders over shareholders

  • Curiosity

  • Continuous learning and practice

  • Human-centric problem solving

  • Technology is the means, not the end
