In 2018, Airwallex were ranked 49th. This time around, after a very successful year, they moved up to the 32nd spot, making them not only Australia’s fastest-growing unicorn of 2019, but also the highest ranked.
2019 has been Airwallex’s strongest year yet. We’ve grown significantly in all aspects of the business, and are closing the year with over 400 employees across nine global offices.” said Airwallex Co-founder and CEO Jack Zhang
And no, we aren’t talking about the mythical creatures. The unicorns we’re talking about are private startup companies that are valued at over $1 billion. The reason they’re known as unicorns is due to the statistical rarity of such successful ventures.
Airwallex help their clients “collect, convert and send international business payments” through what they call “your new passport to global business” .
We are proud of the positive impact we’ve had on businesses all around the world, by transforming the way they manage their international payments.” added Zhang.
