WeTransfer is the simplest way to send your files around the world. The service was founded in
2009 in Amsterdam by Bas Beerens and Nalden, who wanted to create an easy platform for people
to send big files without any sign-up. Today, 40 million active users across 195 countries transfer
one billion files every month. It is WeTransfer’s mission to enable the effortless transfer of ideas
from one creative mind to many. We want to help our users get in, and stay in, their creative flow –
that strange and beautiful state where everything comes together and great things happen.
WeTransfer has a dual revenue model, split between advertising and premium subscriptions. With
WeTransfer Plus, customers benefit from bigger transfer sizes, storage and personalization options.
WeTransfer also works with the world's biggest brands, including Google, Samsung, Netflix and
Squarespace, to develop and deliver beautiful, full-screen advertisements on our background
Since day one, WeTransfer has proudly supported the creative communities by giving away 30% of
the advertising space to showcase projects we love. With WeTransfer Studios, creative
partnerships have been launched with some of the world's most interesting individuals and
organizations, including FKA twigs, Rankin, Anderson .Paak, McSweeney's, World Press Photo, The
Royal Academy of Arts and the Ace Hotel Group. On our content platform This Works, we tell the
stories behind the creative work we curate and create. WeTransfer also supports tomorrow’s
creative leaders by offering free premium accounts to all arts students in the United States.
Following a $25 million investment from Highland Capital in 2015, WeTransfer opened a US office in
Venice Beach, Los Angeles, to add to the Amsterdam headquarters.
