Business

At Velocity, your business is our business.

Are you a local business? So are we!

We set up shop as a local business in 1947, and the credit union has been a part of the Austin community for more than 75 years. Here at Velocity, you’ll find fewer or lower fees for your business accounts than you’ll get from banks.

Your banking experience with us is unique and personalized, with essential financial products and technology provided with just the right mix of friendliness and professionalism.

In addition, as a Velocity business member, your employees become eligible for membership. We’d be happy to visit and explain the benefits of credit unions and how they can switch to Velocity. We can even customize free financial education workshops for them.
