Empowering businesses to operate anywhere, anytime
The world as we know it is no longer the same. Changes now occur in days and months, not years. The digital revolution is here, and Airwallex is at the centre, facilitating the transformation of businesses from offline to online, from local to global.
Airwallex was built with a single purpose in mind – to create a world where all businesses can operate without borders and restrictions, and by doing so, propel the growth of the global digital economy.
Airwallex was inspired by real-life experiences of running our own business and expert knowledge of how money moves.
Out of their love for good coffee, engineering-banking friends Jack Zhang and Max Li started Tukk & Co, a café in Melbourne. As small business owners, they recognised first-hand the impact of high FX fees and banking costs on their profit margins, and sought out to build a better solution for businesses operating cross-border, improving on the constraints of the current global financial system.
Airwallex was founded by Jack and Max, together with friends from the University of Melbourne, Lucy Liu and Xijing Dai.
