Transpay CEO Shares Strategies for Growing Digital Economy

January 18, 2016

With Bangladesh ranking in the top ten countries for outsourced and freelancer talent, recently Transpay’s CEO Samish Kumar  addressed bank partners in Dhaka with strategies for further growing the burgeoning digital economy in Bangladesh.

New York-based Transpay is a B2B/B2P payments platform that powers international payments for global marketplaces and freelance platforms. The synergy between Transpay’s service and Bangladeshi freelancers is strong, says Kumar.

“With more and more Bangladeshi freelancers indicating their desire and preference to receive project payments directly to their local bank accounts, Transpay offers the world’s largest, independent direct-to-bank payment network, including more than 60 local Bangladeshi banks,” Kumar said.

Visiting Dhaka, Kumar met with bank partners to discuss the positive impact the online workforce is having on the Bangladesh economy and how Transpay is simplifying the process of getting paid globally.

“Bangladeshi freelancers provide services to businesses around the world via freelancing platforms, and Transpay is removing the friction of getting paid quickly, securely and cost-effectively,” said Kumar.

Recently, Kumar met with Her Excellency Sheikh Hasina, Prime Minister of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh in New York. Kumar’s visit to Bangladesh is another step in affirming the company’s support for the freelancing community.

“Transpay is proud to be a part of the Bangladeshi community,” said Kumar, who added that today’s meetings would emphasize to bank partners the strength and potential of the local freelancer market.
