WeTransfer - Simplifying The Sharing of Data and Knowledge
The development of the Internet has helped speed-up globalisation, turning the world into a truly global marketplace. Sharing of information, easily and rapidly, allows us to increase knowledge and conduct business.
Cloud-based file transfer
The way content and information is shared these days is constantly changing, as is user development, and Dutch company WeTransfer is continually challenging the market to make the experience as natural as possible for users. It often occurs that certain files cannot be sent via regular email due to file-size restrictions. WeTransfer addresses this problem. WeTransfer is a cloud-based file transfer service based in Amsterdam that allows users to send large files, up to 2GB, via their normal email, for free. Without having to first register an account, users can upload files and end-users are notified by email when the files are ready for download. WeTransfer generates revenues by displaying high quality photo advertisements during uploading and downloading. The firm also offers a subscription-based service for larger files and cloud space where these files can be saved. WeTransfer has been consistently profitable since 2013 and has continued to grow its user base to over 25 million monthly active users that send 70 million transfers each month. All of this helps the company to maintain its position as the leading authority on exchanging digital content in an easy and simple manner.
Sustainable Urban Delta
The inherent complexities and pressures associated with densely populated urban areas are second nature to the Dutch. Over many centuries, authorities, industries, knowledge institutes, and citizens have striven to develop integrated approaches and a holistic vision to enable sustainable development of the urban environment – the Sustainable Urban Delta.
