Venmo was founded on the principle of simplifying financial transactions, and even making these transactions fun. Still, we were surprised by how such a basic principle would resonate with so many. People absolutely love Venmo, and our rapidly growing community of users is a testament to the value of keeping products simple, focused, fun, and friendly.
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 people with their cash, 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 do it together.
