Nigerian-born Mondiu Ladejobi, EMBA ’13, found using wire transfers to send money home inconvenient and plagued by poor service. Ladejobi used his time in Smith’s EMBA program to launch Payvius, an international money transfer service that uses mobile and cloud technology. Ladejobi is focused on rolling out Payvius to serve the Sub-Saharan Africa market first. His goal is to help migrants and immigrants in the United States save on the cost of sending money home.
