TransferGo CEO highlights growth strategy

TransferGo’s CEO Daumantas Dvilinskas stated: “We have been profitable for the last year in and out, and the only burn was marketing, but the burn was very limited. We achieved sustainability of the business and became profitable and we still have proceeds from the last funding round. So we are profitable. We don’t need external capital to grow.”

Acknowledging the opportunity to accelerate growth in the Asia Pacific region, he further noted “We raised money because we wanted to expand faster in Asia Pacific. So that’s the next frontier for us, We are still taking customers from incumbents: 75% come from cash, banks, and Western Union — that’s still the gorilla in the room.”
