Hong Kong Startup Snaptee Gets US$600K In Seed Funding


One of our Hong Kong startups, Snaptee is being featured on TechCrunch today!

“With just a few taps on the screen of your iOS device, Snaptee lets you turn your photos into stylish graphic t-shirts and sell them. Ten thousand designs have already been created by the app’s users since it went live in July and now the Hong Kong-based company’s founders have secured $600,000 in seed funding from a group of Hong Kong and Singapore investors, including Yat Siu of Outblaze Management Team and Animoca, Chris Lee of 6waves, Mikaal Abdulla from 8 Securities (a Techcrunch Disrupt Beijing finalist), Singapore-based angel investor Emanuel R. Breiter and Hong Kong-based investor Tytus Michalski of Fresco Capital.”

We had Wai-Lun Hong pitch at Start Club a few months ago and look at him now. This is the first big angel investment for 2013 and we know there are more coming. Congrats to Wai-Lun and to the group of Hong Kong angels that led this seed round.
