September 2018 - Zhang Zhenghua, Founder and CEO of UNPay, has made it
to Fortune China's 40 under 40's list in 2018. Fortune, one of the world's most
influential business magazines, has officially unveiled its annual ranking of
the most influential young business leaders in China.
Each of the 40 business elites
who has been featured in this esteemed list, is selected for their ingenious
business models within a short span of time, as well as their abilities to
create a sustainable entrepreneurial foundation. These business elites
represent the future of the Chinese business community with the potential to change
and enhance the lives of people around the world.
In its evaluation of Zhenghua,
Fortune magazine stated that Zhenghua was only 30 years old when he became the founder
and CEO of Baidu Wallet and Baidu Finance, managing a team of nearly 1,000
people. His ambition to build the world's largest network of funds and
information exchange services, with the aim of becoming the Visa of the next
generation, was what prompted him to start UNPay. UNPay, which is headquartered
in Singapore, has since established offices in Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, New
Zealand and the United Kingdom.
As one of the pioneers in
China's payment industry, Zhenghua has been consistently recognised for his
contributions by the media and the industry. In addition to being awarded the "Innovative
People of the Year" and "Character of the Year", Zhenghua was also selected as
the first batch of scientific and technological innovation entrepreneurs by the
Ministry of Science and Technology. During Zhenghua's seven-year stint in
Alipay, he created the company's first consumer strategic product called "Life
Assistant" which took the country by storm.
Today, Zhang Zhenghua is taking
UNPay to greater heights. UNPay is currently connected to over 500 mainstream
payment methods, achieving a comprehensive coverage of more than 200 countries
and regions. Within a short span of time, UNPay has become the world's most
extensive payment service network. The business currently spans industries in travel,
education, e-commerce and digital entertainment.
Mr Zhang Zhenghua expressed, "The
technology for advanced digital payment should be made ubiquitous around the
world. It is our aim to enable and connect to the world's payment channels. We
also strive to empower traditional financial institutions, as well as modernise
traditional payment vendors and customers from all walks of life to revamp the
existing payment structure."
"UNPay is committed to
building a payment ecosystem without borders, empowering global partners and
establishing the world's largest network of funds and information exchange
services. From digital payments to credit card payments, UNPay is reshaping a brand-new
wave of global payment!" Mr Zhang added.
