In the beginning: A tale of two visionaries

Once upon a time in the bustling streets of Singapore, Joseph Tan, a former real estate executive with a $3B+ track record, and Emmanuel Rex Rodriguez, a hands-on developer extraordinaire, decided it was time for a revolution. Their mission? To disrupt the residential development game. And so, uwi was born.

The Uwi magic wand—Bespoke loans for builders

Imagine you're a residential developer in Southeast Asia, juggling dreams of building faster, selling faster, and, most importantly, selling out. Here's where uwi steps in with its bespoke loan programs, tailored to solve every scaling woe a developer could dream of.

The punch line: Building dreams, not just homes

Scaling issues? Uwi scoffs in the face of those. Their 'Entry point to homeownership' loan catalog is the holy grail for developers. From EBE Financing for scaling development pipelines to Foreigner Financing for legally financing expats, and even Zero Down for down payment subsidies—uwi's got it all.

And let's not forget Gap Financing for those moments when there's a shortfall. It's like a mortgage menu, and developers can't get enough.

The dance of developers and lenders

So, you're a developer with dreams and plans, but what's next? Fear not! uwi plays matchmaker, pairing developers with their dream lenders. Local banks, foreign banks, non-banking financial institutions—they're all in the mix. It's like Tinder, but for loans. Swipe right, and voila, your bespoke loan opportunity finds its perfect match.

The humor break: Because financing shouldn't be boring

Picture developers and lenders swiping through loan opportunities like they're picking a Friday night movie. "EBE Financing? Oh, that's a blockbuster!" The only drama here is in the construction projects, not the financing.

Founders who know the game

Joseph Tan, the real estate maven, and Emmanuel Rex Rodriguez, the coding wizard, aren't just co-founders; they're the dynamic duo reshaping the landscape. With a $310MM exit under his belt, Joseph Tan is a visionary with a nose for deals. Emmanuel Rex Rodriguez, the hands-on developer, brings the tech magic to the table.

The real talk: More than just mortgages

In the concrete jungle of real estate and fintech, uwi isn't just about mortgages; it's about rewriting the narrative. It's about empowering developers to dream bigger, build faster, and, most importantly, make those dreams a reality. It's financial innovation with a touch of rebellious spirit.

Mortgages, dreams, and changing the game

In a world where mortgages sound like a snooze-fest, uwi is the cool kid on the block. It's not just about crafting loans; it's about architecting dreams. So, here's to Joseph Tan, Emmanuel Rex Rodriguez, and the uwi team—may your mortgages be bespoke, your dreams be limitless, and your revolution unstoppable.

And that, my friends, is the tale of uwi—the startup turning the mortgage game into a playground for dreamers and builders alike.
