We’re on a mission to make Africa the first cashless continent
On a continent where less than 10% of the population has a bank account, Wave is building the first modern financial network — no account fees, instantly available, and accepted everywhere!
We’re building life-changing financial infrastructure
When mobile money succeeded in Kenya, it lifted about a million people out of poverty. And yet, over 10 years later, most Africans still lack access to affordable ways to save, transfer or borrow the money they need to build businesses or provide for their families.
Wave is solving this problem by using technology to build a radically inclusive and extremely affordable financial network. We already move over 3% of the GDP of Senegal and are rapidly scaling our impact across the continent.
Our co-founders, Drew Durbin (left, CEO) and Lincoln Quirk (right, Head of Product), met as hallmates freshman year. They became friends over a shared love of building simple products that make a social impact.
First, they built Sendwave, now the largest digital remittance company to Africa. Next, they turned their attention to Wave with the mission to bring digital finance to everyone in Africa.
