Technology: a longstanding entrepreneurial love affair.

Born and raised in Switzerland, both Alan and Fred fell in love with technology long before the Internet became mainstream and have spent their entire career in mostly e-commerce and software projects.

Leaving the comfort of Switzerland for Spain in 2001, Alan co-founded and ran an online video game startup, which later expanded to Hong Kong in 2003. It grew to have 350 customer service and software development staff, one million customers in a year, $90 million in revenue, and which received over $80 million of VC investments.

In 2009, Fred joined Alan on his second venture in Hong Kong after having spent many years working in merger, acquisition and reorganization projects for top financial organization in Switzerland. Before then, he also monitored outsourcing suppliers as a corporate buyer and became the youngest IT board member of a listed company at age 25.

Alan and Fred moved their second venture to the Philippines. And in 2010, the perfect marriage of entrepreneurial experience and passion for tech led to the creation of Arcanys.
