How long does a typical engagement last?

All engagements are custom tailored to a client’s needs. Some projects are completed in one or two days onsite with a client, and some are ongoing until all the client’s needs have been met. The consulting group will work with your team to evaluate the scope of work, and create a working plan that is mutually agreed upon by the client and consultant.

Will this help us get an account with Silvergate?

The consulting services provided by Silvergate are separate and distinct from the customer’s interest in banking with Silvergate. Clients who are interested in banking with Silvergate must be independently reviewed and approved for an account by the Bank’s typical account review process for Fintech customers.
