“Opening Acts” featuring Pangea Founder Rahier Rahman (VIDEO)

We were pleased to have Rahier Rahman, Co-Founder of Pangea as our third “Opening Acts” guest to introduce his new start-up. We interview exciting new startups during Opening Acts while people are grabbing beer and pizza before Chicago Founders’ Stories @1871.

Rahier Rahman is the Founder and CEO of Pangea, is a social impact startup enabling consumers to send money to anyone from anywhere at any time using the web, mobile and retail. The goal is to make money transfer easier, cheaper and more convenient than the traditional options. Pangea charges a consistent fee, no matter how much or where you want to send money.

In this short video, Rahier explains his idea came about when he was working in the prepaid space and was exposed to the infrastructure that existed. He saw most systems were disconnected and envisioned a world that could connect systems, facilitate collaboration and move funds across a network. In the future, Rahier says he wants to continue to build on the product while maintaining its current mission of helping people.  Disclosure: I am an inventor in Pangea through Chicago Ventures.
