WeTransfer is the simplest way to send your files around the world. Over 40 million people use WeTransfer every month to share creative ideas. The company is extending its offerings with the new WeTransfer app - a simple way to express and share your creative ideas.

- Use it to collect pictures, movies, documents, or songs from any app.

- Organize and view on beautiful boards from wherever you happen to be.

- Easily share boards of unlimited size with colleagues, friends or family.

 

The WeTransfer app is making the sharing of visual and more varied content easier for everyone. It can help you create a mood board for a client, inspire the wedding of your dreams, compose a storyboard for a video, or plan your fiscal year. Boards of any size can be shared by email, text or through any channel, like Slack or WhatsApp, right from the app. What’s more, users can receive WeTransfer files on the app and instantly view them as visual boards.

Nalden, co-founder and CIO WeTransfer, says: “At WeTransfer we are all about enabling people to share their creative ideas in the most effortless way. The new WeTransfer app removes any hurdles to collect & share different file types and facilitates a beautiful and easy workflow on mobile.”

The launch of the new app marks an important milestone for WeTransfer, as the company is evolving from a file-sharing service to one that provides a wider set of tools for creative minds.

Nalden: “We are working towards becoming an indispensable service in the creative process; from getting inspiration on our editorial platform This Works to sharing and presenting the final work via WeTransfer.”

About WeTransfer

WeTransfer makes beautifully obvious tools that bring ideas to life. Founded in 2009 in Amsterdam as a simple, well-designed file sharing service for the creative community, WeTransfer has grown to include tools that scale across the creative spectrum, including editorial platform WePresent (with over 2M monthly readers), mobile app 'Collect by WeTransfer' (with over 4M monthly users), quick slide-making tool Paste™ (with over 100,000 teams), immersive sketching tool Paper® (with over 25M downloads), and the original web platform with 42M monthly users and over a billion files sent each month.

From the beginning, WeTransfer has prioritized bringing “offline” values - trust, transparency, and ethics - online. This means the leanest data policy possible and tools that don’t distract people from their creative flow. WeTransfer has pioneered a new means of online advertising, resulting in the platform’s full-page wallpapers, designed by our award-winning in-house creative studio. Advertisers include industry-leading brands like Apple, Saint Laurent, Google, Balenciaga, Samsung, Netflix, Adidas, and Squarespace.

Since its founding, WeTransfer has proudly supported the creative communities and given up to 30% of advertising space to support the arts, donating over 5 billion impressions in 2017. Through our ongoing advertising grant program and content platform, WePresent, we have partnered with hundreds of groundbreaking artists and organizations, including Björk, King Krule, FKA twigs, Ryan McGinley, Ami Vitale, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the UN Development Program, the World Wildlife Foundation and the Prince Estate. In 2016, WeTransfer launched the world’s first free Masters of the Arts in design thinking with the University of the Underground and Worldwide FM, the global radio station run by legendary BBC DJ Gilles Peterson.

Following a $25 million investment from Highland Europe in 2015, WeTransfer opened a US office in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, to add to the Amsterdam headquarters. In 2018, WeTransfer acquired popular creative apps Paper® and Paste™ and expanded its US presence to Seattle and New York City.
