Mr Wah is the founder and CEO of Getz Group, a Foodtech and Fintech company that has been selected and featured by Infocomms Media Development Authority as a proven solution in assisting food and beverage retailers in their digital transformation process. It has attracted S$2 million seed investment from Angel Investors and is currently the leading F&B platform in Singapore serving more than 20% of the F&B Retailing Industry. Getz is currently operating across Southeast Asia and will be entering the European market by end of 2017.
In 2009, Mr Wah founded another successful company, Smoovpay – a digital payment company - shortly aer graduating from NTU. It attracted S$1 million of investment from SPRING Singapore and was lauded at the SME One Asia Awards 2014.
A serial entrepreneur, Mr Wah was already running his own backpacker hostel as a School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) freshman. While at MAE, he also started a mobile texting service similar to the voting system used on “American Idol”. The service was subsequently used during NTU forums and events. Despite this, he still managed to find time to contribute to the NTU Cultural Activities Club, serving in roles like business manager, programmer and vice-president.
