SAN FRANCISCO, CA - (NewMediaWire) - April 12, 2018 - APT SYSTEMS, INC. (PINK OTC: APTY), a fully-reporting, publicly-traded, financial technology company, today announced it has raised $600,000 in its Seed funding round. Led by TRITON FUNDS, the new fund launched by students at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), the investment will drive the continued expansion of APTY’s Intuitrader trading platform and stock charting application, KenCharts. The investment comes as the Company experiences solid acceptance with KenCharts iOS Version 1.0 and prepares to launch its Android version. Delivering a Kencharts 2.0 with real time data and proprietary indicators is soon to follow.
“We are excited to partner with TRITON FUNDS and support the student-led initiative to offer students real-world experience,” said Glenda Dowie, founder and CEO of APT Systems. “This is an enthusiastic vote of confidence in our company and we welcome the capital and millennial touchÔ the students bring to our business.”
APTY provides convenient tools for traders to study charts. Through the Smartphone and tablet applications, users can access North America markets and equities charts while on-the-go. The company is also researching the demand for cryptocurrency and token charting tools.
“Mobile charting and trading is a highly disruptive industry, and Glenda has her team focused on applying their platform innovations across all mobile devices; APTY’s technology platforms have broad applications that support their subscribers and drive growth. We are excited to lead this round of financing and assist them in shaping the future of the industry.” said Yash Thukral, co-founder of TRITON FUNDS.
Nathan Yee, co-founder of TRITON FUNDS, added, “We were able to check all of the boxes, when conducting our due diligence on APTY, for our fund’s Q1’18 investment initiative – the company is located in California, it is utilized by alumni, and it is led by a female founder; not to mention, it’s mobile and has the potential to transform charting and trading as we know it today.”
APTY’s senior leadership also has deep experience across the financial technology industry, including Joseph Gagnon, CTO, previously at Branagh Information Group, and Carl Hussey, CFO, a trader who previously served at the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF). In addition to Glenda, Joseph and Carl had joined the Company’s board of directors in its early days.
“The emergence of fintech has only just begun.” said Sam Yaffa, co-founder of TRITON FUNDS. “As millennials learn the importance of investing to grow their money, companies like APTY provide us with the tools to do so with ease.”
