What this is:
This is a two-day immersion into behavior changing strategies taught and facilitated by world-leading experts. The play-by-play agenda details will be available for accepted attendees.
Who it’s for:
Companies who are building solutions that help improve the financial lives of low- to moderate- income people living in the United States.
What we’ll be covering:
- DAY 1 – LEARNING: The first day will be ten hours of lectures and interactive working sessions. You’ll learn our “3B” method for building products that change behavior. This method has been taught and used at leading organizations like Google, Aetna, and the World Bank. There will be engaging, in-depth reviews of key behavioral motivators like loss aversion, incentives, social proof, accountability, and behavioral economics from world-class researchers.
- DAY 2 – APPLYING: The second day will be spent applying what you learned on day one. You’ll work hand-in-hand with an expert behavioral academic to design new tests / positioning / features that will aim to increase your customer’s financial well-being. This will be a fast-paced and fun day – you’ll walk away with new ideas, energy, and designs to go implement.
Join our behavioral experts for a riveting conversation on how to start and increase short-term savings for middle Americans effectively. In this session, we will share results from a couple field studies with Digit, as well as new research on savings.
- Why don’t people apply for SNAP in the first place (1/3 of eligible households don’t apply)?
- What are the main barriers in the application process?
- Are we delivering SNAP in the most efficient way?
- What are the spending pattern of SNAP recipients?
36% of Americans have less than $500 in savings. Fintech and behavioral researchers are tackling the largest financial issues most Americans face every day; stagnant wages, antiquated benefit platforms, and increasing indebtedness. This session will bring together behavioral and fintech experts from Digit, EarnUp, Payable, & CommonCents to discuss how to improve people’s financial behaviors using social science.
These experts will address what behavioral design actually means, how the fin-tech world should apply it, and how it has failed.
This is a rare occasion to get an applied view on how fintech startups are using the science of human behavior to solve large societal problems.
