Ryan Falvey

Managing Director

Ryan Falvey, Managing Director of the Financial Solutions Lab at the nonprofit Center for Financial Services Innovation, sits at the helm of an unusual kind of accelerator: One that values the financial health of consumers. Over the last 3 years, Falvey has led the development of the Financial Solutions Lab from its infancy to the program it is today – one which has graduated some 18 companies that have collectively raised $135 million, and which today serve more than 1.4 million consumers. Each of the companies is measuring their impact on consumers, which provides the Financial Solutions Lab with unique insights into what works and what doesn’t for the consumers who need fintech solutions the most.

Falvey is a frequent public speaker who has spoken everywhere from the U.S. Congress to Money20/20. Prior to managing the Financial Solutions Lab, he was at Silicon Valley Bank, where he worked with leading technology firms to develop innovative payment products and solutions. He also served as the Strategy Group Lead at Enclude Solutions, overseeing Enclude’s global strategy consulting work in over 30 countries and supporting the development of several of the world’s most successful mobile-enabled financial products. Falvey has a graduate degree from Yale and an undergraduate degree from UCLA.
