New York, Oct. 10, 2018 — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Weyland Tech, Inc. (“Weyland”) or (“The Company”) today announces a $2 million investment from TRITON FUNDS LP, the La Jolla, CA-based investment fund entirely managed by students from the University of California, San Diego and California State University, Northridge. The funds will accelerate the development of the Company’s AtoZPay, eWallet, and core PaaS business, CreateApp.
TRITON FUNDS is the largest student-run fund in the United States and focuses on “millennial growth ESG” (Environmental, Social and Governance) investment themes.
Weyland CEO Brent Suen comments, “TRITON FUNDS, although a younger fund and managed exclusively by students, is a major validation of our initiatives in Southeast Asia. Younger demographics in the region have led to multi-billion-dollar valuations of ‘millennial-driven’ tech companies with strategic and financial backing from the likes of Google, Alibaba, Tencent, Sequoia Capital, KKR, Warburg Pincus, Softbank and sovereign fund Temasek. Sam Yaffa and his team impressed us with their deep understanding of thematic investing and appreciating that high returns can be gleaned by taking an investment approach based on observing how peers behave. Notable investments by TRITON include LimeBike https://www.li.me/ and AtYourGate http://atyourgate.com/. The major connectivity comes from TRITON’s immediate understanding of smartphone penetration, mobile commerce, and eWallets and realizing how emerging markets where we operate will benefit from the convergence of all three. We firmly believe that this investment from TRITON will enable us to scale at a much higher rate.”
“Weyland Tech presents a unique opportunity to accommodate the millennial generation in the emerging markets,” said Sam Yaffa, co-founder of TRITON FUNDS. “Weyland is not only a first mover in the eWallet industry but is penetrating the most technologically advanced and adaptive market in the world – Southeast Asia. TRITON FUNDS has the upmost confidence in Brent and the management team to execute the company’s expansion plans because of their vast experience in the region. In addition, the success of their DIY app creator platform, CreateApp, serves as a testament of the company’s ability to achieve its objectives.”
Dmitriy Slobodskiy, Research Analyst at TRITON FUNDS, adds, “Weyland Tech has created an accessible way for anyone to build their business through the CreateApp platform. The company was able to simplify a complex process of app-creating and as a result, we are excited to see the developments the company can implement in the eWallet industry.”
