The Rewardle Story: The IPO and $22m Valuation

Ruwan Weerasooriya

Hi Disruptive Startups,

We are introducing Ruwan Weerasooriya, the founder and Managing Director of ASX listed Rewardle Holdings Limited (ASX:RXH).

Rewardle is a social network that connects consumers with their favourite local places based on transactions

The Company is aiming to be a leading platform for merchants and consumers as the worlds of marketing, social media, mobile and payments converge to change how we connect, share and transact.

Ruwan dropped out of a pharmacy degree during the dot com boom to start an Internet service provider in 1994 which kicked off an entrepreneurial career in technology and media that includes a string of successful ventures prior to launching Rewardle in 2012.

In 2013, Startup Daily listed Ruwan in the Top 50 Influencers in the Australian Startup Scene. In 2014 he debuted on the BRW Young Rich List with an estimated value of $22M but he has assured us that his family thinks he is priceless.
