Linkedin Profile

Over a decade ago, I observed mobile phone users gifting mobile airtime to each other over SMS in the Philippines. Recognising the value of airtime as a form of currency in emerging markets, I anticipated mobile transactions to dominate the future of cross-border payments and created TransferTo in 2005 for a fundamental purpose: to offer a network infrastructure enabling people to send and receive money easily via mobile.
