Founded in 2010, WorldRemit has raised over $220 million from Accel, LeapFrog and TCV. The platform lets users send money to friends and family in 150 countries, giving people in developing countries access to the financial system at a fraction of the cost of traditional remittance providers. In doing so, WorldRemit empowers local communities, especially women, as Catherine explains.
WorldRemit is creating huge value and solving massive problems. It's great to speak with founders as mission-driven as Catherine.
