Wave’s mission is to make sending money to Africa as easy and affordable as sending a text. It all began in 2014 when Drew, one of our founders, got fed up going to a store and paying over 10% to send money for an NGO he was running in Tanzania.
So, he teamed up with Lincoln to build Wave, an app that let users send money instantly from their smartphone to their recipient’s mobile money account in Kenya.
Three years later, we’re in 5 African nations. The rest of Africa is next! ❤️
