What is Variable Ventures

Variable Ventures

Variable Ventures is a proof of concept taking the power of network dynamics to a new level of collaborative idea incubation, development and investment.

Vic Pantea and his team have built this new company, leveraging his experience at the collaborative credit union incubator, Member Gateways and the network of owners of cuasterisk.com.

The long-term objective of Variable Ventures is to inspire the creation of a community of owners including and beyond the cuasterisk.com network. This future includes other credit union visionaries, entrepreneurs and investors. A community of citizens who will empower the creation of new solutions that will expand and better meet the needs of credit unions and their owner-members.

If this mission gets your mind into high gear and you share the principles of collaborative creation, keep your eyes on our story. Better yet give us call or drop us an email.

Variable Ventures' Venture Forth Innovation Competition

Variable Ventures offers the Venture Forth Competition as a “shark tank like” opportunity for its network partners to be recognized for their efforts to execute examples of innovation during this crisis. The competition will also accept ideas, plans and projects that are being developed to lead us in the post crisis period, after social distancing has ended and the “new normal” resumes.

Venture Forth

This is the best time for us to collaboratively leverage our combined network assets within an incubator and investor business model.
