FinTech Forge is now the Alloy Labs Institute.
When we first stated Fintech Forge in 2014 we chose the name to reflect a commitment to building things that last. We wanted to go far beyond traditional consulting to create programs that could drive lasting change within highly regulated institutions. We continued that theme in naming our trademark FIRE™ process (Fast, Iterative, Responsive Experiments), and in our Anvil™ program because it is the foundation for forging ideas into results.
In 2018 when we built a consortium of banks whose combined strength and flexibility is greater than the sum of its component elements, the natural name was the Alloy Labs Alliance. Today it has over $250B in combined assets, equal to a top 15 bank, and providing the scope and scale not possibly working alone.
And now FinTech Forge becomes the Alloy Labs Institute. The same industry-leading tools and frameworks taught at leading graduate schools of banking, the same corporate and executive growth programs, the same live interactive (co)Labs, and the same team.
This continues a transition we have been making over time to better connect all of the things we do from the member-driven bank collaboration of the Alloy Labs Alliance, to the accelerated bank/fintech partnerships of our Concept Lab, to the strategy-led corporate venture capital investments of our Alloy Alchemist Fund.
The Alloy Labs Institute develops and shares best practices and programs to help financial institutions build and leverage their innovative capacity to create and maintain competitive advantage and drive exponential growth.
Our team brings real-world expertise and experience, along with our industry-leading tools and frameworks that have been featured in top publications, boardrooms, and graduate banking school classrooms around the world.
Everything from the Alloy Labs Institute will remain open to all employees of banks and credit unions, with preferred pricing and scheduling for members of the Alloy Labs Alliance. ________________________________________________ The corporate and executive growth programs from the Alloy Labs Institute are the industry leader in helping financial institutions build and leverage their innovative capacity to create competitive advantage and drive growth. We have taught these principles in boardrooms and classrooms around the world, including at leading graduate schools of banking. Unleash exponential growth potential, build internal innovation capacity to "unbreak the bank", and quickly forge ideas into results. You can also learn and apply some of our industry-leading tools and frameworks and learn best practices from peers on operationalizing innovation in our open (co)Lab sessions. Both are open to non-Alloy Labs member financial institutions.
