Welcome to SwaappEx

Hi there, I’m Ricky Lee, the founder of SwaappEx.

SwaappEx is a self-funded startup in London, aiming to change the way PEOPLE EXCHANGE their travel money.

I have driven the companies design, strategy and growth for the last year. Success without my team’s support wouldn't of been possible, so thanks to their help we are now finally launching. We are currently 7 MEMBERS IN TOTAL and looking to grow in the next few months with the success of our platform.

As an experienced product designer and detailed in user experience, my vision is to provide a fabulous easy-to-use community platform for all sorts of people to communicate in a unique way for all of us to get rid of our leftover travel money.

TAKEN from several different resources, the market size of leftover holiday money in the UK WAS estimated to be over a staggering £3 billion (last recorded in 2014). Think about how MUCH FOREIGN CURRENCY IS THERE STILL TUCKED AWAY in your CLOSET? With SwaappEx, now is the time for you to get those foreign coins and notes back in YOUR POCKET IN A CURRENCY YOU CAN USE!

Welcome to the new Social Currency Exchange age!
