CFPB Innovations Project: Announcing Call for Prototyping Partners

Oct 3, 2013 in Blog

ideas42 and its partners, the Doorways to Dreams (D2D) Fund, the Center for Financial Services Innovation (CFSI), and the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED), are excited to announce a call for prototyping partners on the CFPB Innovations Project. The project seeks to develop and test prototypes of new approaches for helping consumers overcome common decision-making challenges in managing their finances. We’re seeking innovators, businesses, and other organizations to work with us to prototype innovations and evaluate their effectiveness. Prototyping partners will have input into refining the design features of innovations, and will get the opportunity to be part of a behavioral design process led by ideas42 and its team.

The Innovations Project is being conducted by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), with ideas42 serving as a CFPB contractor tasked with managing this project. Organizations should indicate their interest by submitting a brief letter of interest describing their interests and capabilities via email to financialeducation@cfpb.gov. Please include “Innovations Project” in the subject line. Please contact us today if you are interested in this opportunity – and make sure you submit your interest by November 8, 2013.

For more information on the project and criteria selection, see the announcement on the ideas42 website and the CFPB blog.
