peerTransfer was founded as a direct result of the issues experienced by its founder and former international student, Iker Marcaide. As he experienced first-hand the difficulty and frustration of transferring funds from a European bank to MIT, paying high fees and not having his money arrive on time, he envisioned a solution that alleviate these issues. He then developed and launched the peerTransfer solution. Today, it is helping many leading universities and their students find an easier and more efficient way to transfer funds.
peerTransfer helps universities to receive payments from international students while providing secure, seamless, and easy-to-navigate system for students that not only enables them to pay in their home currency, but saves them a significant amount of money (thousands of dollars) when doing so.
We have a fast-paced, creative, high energy, informal and demanding start-up atmosphere, where everybody and their work are important, and the work is done together in a fun and flexible environment. Take a look at our company values if you are curious.
peerTransfer has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and is backed by international investors, including Spark Capital, Accel Partners and Maveron, which in aggregate manage over $12B.
