Banking 2.0 – FinovateStartup: Focus on FindABetterBank from Facilitas

FinovatestartuplogoI covered the first Finovate event organized by Jim Bruene back in October 2007 (in New York City). The event was such a success (it sold out in only 6 weeks) that Jim decided to organize two more Finovate events in 2008: FinovateStartup & Finovate 08.

I was delighted when Jim invited me to be the official live blogger on NetBanker at FinovateStartup in San Francisco.  Before the event, I plan to blog about most of the 40 startups which will demo their products. My goal is to give you a brief overview of those innovative startups.

Facilitas creates services that make it easier to shop and change financial service providers. In addition to FindABetterBank, Facilitas has developed BankSwitcher to help people switch their automated deposits and payments once they open a new checking account.

In January 2007, They created a blog about finding better banks.
