Q2 Innovation Studio Launch

On June 9th 2021, Q2 formally launched the Innovation Studio concept. The launch of the Innovation studio marks a milestone of over 400 FIs using our software through the power of the Caliper SDK. The Innovation Studio is comprised of:

  • FIs using the Caliper SDK to extend the Q2 banking platform
  • Custom development companies being employed by FIs to extend the Q2 banking platform
  • Q2 Marketplace, where fintechs create an app for FIs with the cost of the app is passed to the end user
  • Partner Accelerator Program, where FIs can purchase a Fintech product that has already integrated with our software

All of these programs coordinate to make Q2 software more powerful, customizable, and efficient. Marketplace and Accelerator programs can be completed in a matter of days and weeks. The other programs can be completed in a matter of weeks or months, depending on the size of the project.
