Twitter won it, GoPro won it - now TransferWise has walked off with the Smaller Company award.
TransferWise co-founder Kristo attended the FT’s Boldness in Business Awards last week and looked very smart as he picked up an award for boldest smaller company. With co-founder Taavet, he spoke to the FT's Richard Milne to explain the TransferWise philosophy - "to see how TransferWise could charge as little as possible while building a global, sustainable business."
Previous winners at the FT awards include Amazon, Groupon and Twitter so we're over the moon to be considered in such prestigious company. This seems like a great moment to thank everyone who makes our success possible – all our TransferWise revolutionaries. Viva la révolution!

In Kristo's words:
> "FT award goes to the boldest of all - the TransferWise user who trusts the modern, breaks free of banks and saves $$ by being smart"
Our name up in lights!
