About Us

We all love what we do, and we all love doing it together, because we demand the best people to make the best Venmo.

Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the foreboding walls of financial transactions to make them intuitive and even fun with friends. And it worked, people love sending money with Venmo.

But we’re not done. We want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it into every place you use your money. We want to connect the people of the world with their money, in an intuitive way, then connect them with each other in a genuine way. 

All that’s going to take a lot of figuring out. Let’s figure it out together.
