Airwallex partners with OurCrowd to improve global startup investment

Thursday 3 August 2023 12:56 CET | News

Global payments and financial platform Airwallex has partnered with Israel-based OurCrowd to facilitate investments in global startups.


Through this partnership, institutions and individual accredited investors will be able to invest in startups anywhere in the world by using their own local currencies. Before this collaboration, performing a startup investment involved converting local currency into USD and wiring it. Now, OurCrowd’s investors from more than 195 countries can invest in global startups on a digital platform in their own currency in a quick and easy manner. 

OurCrowd will integrate Airwallex’s API in order to allow users to invest in their own currencies and bypass any restrictions caused by USD-denominated wire transfers. Furthermore, accredited investors can now participate in startup deals with less friction and more efficiency thanks to Airwallex products such as Global Accounts, Payouts and LockFX. 

OurCrowd allocates global accounts to all users, who can select from various currencies, including their own local denomination, whenever they want to invest. Once selected, OurCrowd converts the funds into USD at a transparent rate that is generally locked in for 24 hours. This integration has the potential to increase speed and efficiency while improving the investing experience on both ends of the transaction.
