Talking tech and international money transfer with Remitly CEO Matt Oppenheimer
Matt shares with Natalie how traveling to over 100 countries provided him deep insight into how impactful receiving money from family members is to residents of third world countries. He witnessed how vital money was to the welfare of families.
Through his career as the head of Barclays ( an online Bank) mobile and internet banking initiatives, he saw the consistent setbacks customers had when trying to transfer money. This included high fees and slow processing times.
It was during this time that Matt set out to create a digital solution to the global remittance problem.
