‘Working with Maveron was an easy decision for the Flywire founding team.  As a consumer-focused VC, Maveron understands that payments are evolving rapidly, and that the winning models will discard the traditions of the past.  Maveron’s decision to invest in Flywire was a clear expression of their confidence in our business concept.’
