Florence Toffa - Gather 2018
Khalid Qassim is one of the founders of the fintech company Transfer Galaxy. With roots from Somalia, Khalid often sends money to relatives and was formerly doing that through a local agent in Vivalla outside of Örebro. He was annoyed by how expensive it was and one day came up with the idea of making simple transfers abroad which resulted in Transfer Galaxy - a solution solving a problem for hundreds of million people in the world. The system connects Swedish internet banks with phone operators of the receiving countries, countries where cellphones are a very important part of the infrastructure.
