“If you think of a regional or community bank, they spend something like $10 – $12 per month on an open account on technology costs alone,” he told Tearsheet. “We spend something like $0.10 – $0.15. We’re able to profitably open and maintain bank accounts for gig workers, essential workers and teenagers.”
