About this event

Matt Oppenheimer is co-founder and chief executive officer of Remitly, a mobile remittance company that is redefining money transfers to the developing world. After receiving his MBA from Harvard Business School, Matt worked for Barclays Bank first in London and then Nairobi, Kenya where he oversaw mobile and internet banking initiatives. It was there that he became passionate about solving the difficulty in sending and receiving money from overseas.

He began working on the problem immediately as Entrepreneur in Residence at Highway 12 Ventures in Idaho. He moved the company to Seattle, Washington in order to participate in the TechStars program and has since launched Remitly as a successful and innovative financial services firm.
