“We are pleased to welcome 65 Equity Partners as a substantial long-term stockholder of AvePoint,” said Dr. Tianyi Jiang (TJ), Co-Founder & CEO, AvePoint. “This investment reflects their confidence in our vision to advance the digital workplace, capture growing markets and prioritize profitable growth. The APAC region represents an enormous growth opportunity for us, and given that Singapore is an important innovation center for AvePoint, we believe that an eventual dual listing on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) will garner additional investor support in the region.”
