We’re excited to share that FiftyThree will be joining WeTransfer! Paste™ and Paper® will be coming with us as part of the acquisition. Seven years ago we set out to build a suite of tools to unlock creative ideas. Today, we’re thrilled to connect that quest with WeTransfer’s aim to effortlessly transfer ideas between creative minds. (Press Release)
WeTransfer began in 2009 as a way for creative thinkers to effortlessly send large files around the world and has quickly grown to 42 million active users sharing one billion files every month. They’ve become a leading advocate with their creator-friendly values around openness and data privacy and support for the creative community by giving away 30% of their advertising space to showcase amazing ideas.
We found we connected not just on our values but our fundamental belief in the power of creative thinking as the positive force for humankind. Technology doesn’t have to drive us apart — it can bring great minds together. We hope to unlock the creative power in us all through a suite of beautiful, essential tools that help inspire, capture, and share great ideas.
For the millions using Paper and Paste, we want to assure you that we are dedicated now more than ever to building and growing both tools. This doesn’t change our path, it only accelerates it — the same great team will continue working on both tools. If you’re a paying Paste or Paper customer, nothing is changing around pricing or functionality in the near term, and we’ll keep you well-informed of any upcoming changes that may impact you. We’ve got a few big ideas cooking that we think you’ll be thrilled about.
We’re excited about what this next chapter means for our team, our products, and the larger creative community. We thank you, our team, supporters and investors immensely for getting us here.
If you have any thoughts or questions, please reach out, we’re here to answer them.
