About WeTransfer

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, over 40 million active users transfer one billion files every month all over the world. It is WeTransfer’s mission to enable the effortless transfer of ideas between creative minds. 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 wallpapers.

Since day one, WeTransfer has proudly supported the creative communities by giving away up to 30% of the advertising space to showcase projects we love. Creative partnerships have been launched with some of the world's most interesting individuals and organizations, including Björk, Trevor Noah, Ryan McGinley, Moby, FKA twigs, alt-J, McSweeney's, World Press Photo, The Royal Academy of Arts, WWF and the Ace Hotel Group. On our content platform WePresent, we tell unexpected stories about creative minds from around the world. 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.
