Unlocking Economic Barriers and Opportunities For All

Enabling a more inclusive, participatory and sustainable global financial system is a truly collaborative endeavor. Ripple is proud to partner with mission-driven fintechs, leading universities, NGOs, foundations and social entrepreneurs to create greater economic fairness and opportunity for all.

Our current global financial system does not meet the needs of 1.7 billion unbanked people. Digital assets and distributed ledger technology (DLT) have the potential to transform how unbanked and underbanked populations access basic financial services and send and receive money across borders, making it more accessible, affordable and secure.
