After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University, Tae Lim Oh moved to Seoul.where he and his team built a cross-border open market platform. They soon realized that cross-border transactions incurred fees of 3% or more and took days to settle. Venturing back to California, they set out to solve the problem of democratizing the global financial platform, and Gluwa was born
A technology built with no user in mind is an art form, not a business tool. Gluwa's approach is to first understand market needs and then develop the best technology to address them. We are in the business of solving real-world problems to help real people.
At Gluwa, we believe that exceptionally engineered software systems are built on these three values: simplicity, ingenuity, and accountability. We embrace these values when we design our systems, to establish trust and ensure that our products enrich the lives of the people we serve.
We are not building just a company but a society, of which the company is just one component. Our investors, users, and even non-users are all part of the society: Gluwa cannot exist without all of them. Everything we are doing is for the society as a whole.
We are based in San Francisco, California and have offices in Seoul, Vancouver, Manila, and Lagos.
