In recognition of the great strides and milestones he has achieved as an entrepreneur, Nanyang Technological University is proud to present Mr Wah Ziyuan Steve with the Nanyang Outstanding Young Alumni Award.

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.

华梓渊先生凭着创业道路上披荆斩棘、屡创佳绩,获南洋理工大学授予南洋杰出青年校友奖。

华先生是Getz Group的创办人兼首席执行官。Getz 是一间提供食品业和金融业科技支援的公司,曾受到新加坡通讯媒体发展管理局特别报导,表扬为协助餐饮业进入数码科技时代的解决方案。Getz获得天使投资者的2百万种子投资资金,并成为新加坡领先的餐饮业科技平台,为全岛20%的餐饮业者服务。目前Getz已在东南亚各国营运,并计划于2017年底进军欧洲市场。

华先生从南大毕业后,早在2009年就成功创立了SMOOV公司,提供平台让消费者利用智能设备进行付款。SMOOV获得新加坡标新局注资100万新元,也曾在2014年亚洲中小型企业奖颁奖礼上受到表扬。

华先生的创业抱负及眼光独到,在南大机械与宇航工程学院念一年级时,他就开始经营一家背包客宿舍。在机械与宇航工程学院求学期间,华先生推出一项手机简讯服务,其形式类似选秀节目《美国偶像》中采用的投票制度,该服务后来在南大主办的论坛和活动上派上用场。尽管学业事业两头忙,在校时华先生仍抽出时间参加校内的文化活动俱乐部,曾担任其经理、活动策划人和副会长。
