About WEGOGO

WEGOGO (我走走) is a social discovery AI travel platform for sophisticated travellers to connect directly with local hosts who offer aspirational and transformational travel - immersive, perspective-changing experiences that bring one closer towards self-actualization. Local hosts usually run small travel businesses and often have limited access to technology or sales channels. With just the use of mobile phones, WEGOGO lets them level the playing field to be found by others, and facilitate journeys of self-discovery by the travelers.

With this investment, the travel portal has raised a total of $2.78 million to date. The strategic investment will provide a “proven expertise and access to more travel participants” who will change the world of travel, said Wong Toon King, managing partner of FarSight Capital, lead investor and chairman of WEGOGO. “The market potential for the tours and activities segment alone is the third largest in the world, and will be worth $129 billion in the next two years,” said King. WEGOGO also announced the launch of initial coin offering of its WeGold Tavel Tokens to fund “Fair-Share Travel Ecosystem” project based on the blockchain technology.

WEGOGO is also offering its “PathFinder Model” for international students and travel industry professionals. “Having been in the travel business across North, South East Asia and specifically China, I have personally experienced the growth and transformation of these markets. I have seen first-hand how travellers’ habits and tastes have evolved from offline to online,” said Tan, who will bring her extensive experience of the travel market in China as well as Asia to the team of WEGOGO. Tan has led AirAsia’s growth in China and grew the fleet of Malaysia’s largest airline from 17 to 143 between 2004 and 2013. Prior to returning to the role as the current president of AirAsia in China, Tan worked as the CEO of AirAsia Expedia for two years.
