We found the most captivating next generation leaders, organized them, and set them loose on the consumer finance industry’s most flummoxing problems. The result? Filene's renowned i³ (Ideas, Innovation, Implementation) program.

2013 & 2014 i3ers with select alumni at Estes Park, CO in July, 2015

Complete this form to be notified about all things Filene i3, including application notifications.

Complete this form if you'd like to nominate* someone for the program.

*Your nomination does not commit to anything. We will simply let them know someone thinks they have what it takes to make a great i3er and encourage them to apply.

Congratulations to the New 2017 i3 Members!
