Internal consulting is opening up to startups

SG Consulting operates on a similar business model to that of a consultancy firm. Exposed to the Group’s requirements, it has developed specific know-how and an offer that is tailored to the Group’s needs. It has acknowledged expertise in scoping complex projects, the operational efficiency of organisations, outsourcing and certain banking and regulatory topics. The next step in SG Consulting’s development is to grow its number of business contacts, and notably start-ups, that are developing tomorrow’s solutions.

Objective:  irrigate the content of its missions with knowledge of technologies and new approaches to meet the needs of the Bank’s clients.

We take a look back at this cooperation.
