Kristo Käärmann on building TransferWise, the ‘Robin Hood’ of currency exchange

There’s no better way to kick-off 2019 than with an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the story of portfolio company and fintech unicorn, TransferWise, as told by Co-founder and CEO, Kristo Käärmann. As part of the first ever Seedcamp podcast recorded in a sauna, Kristo tells us the story of how two Estonian friends went from exchanging money over a Skype chat to sending more than €3 billion across the world every month. Now valued at more than $1.5 billion, TransferWise has received backing from leading venture capitalists like Index Ventures, Valar Ventures, IA Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, IVP, Baillie Gifford, and Sir Richard Branson, among others.

Tune in for a unique insight into one of the flagship companies in the fintech ecosystem and hear first hand from Kristo as he shares some of the challenges faced along the way in building a global giant in the currency exchange category. And if you want to be a part of TransferWise’s mission to create money without borders, there are more than 130 openings at the company around the world!
