Like a lot of good stories, the TransferWise story starts with two friends.They’re both from Estonia. Taavet was the first employee at Skype, so he got paid in euros. But he lived in London, and needed pounds to pay the bills. Kristo worked for Deloitte and lived in London. He got paid in pounds. But he had a mortgage back in Estonia. He needed to pay that in euros. Every month they moved their money the old way. It was wasting them time and costing them money. So they invented a beautifully simple workaround that became a billion dollar business.
TransferWise believe that lives and ideas shouldn’t be held back by borders.
