Serge Belamant founded his first company in 1989, Net1 Technologies and contributed much success including expansion and revenue growth.

Net1 was very successful building funds transfer systems (FTS) and went public on the New York NASDAQ which has a market value of $2 billion. Belamant served as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman and by 2017 sold the company to launch Zilch Technology, a year later.

Milwaukee Bucks co-owner, Wes Edens recently broadened his grip on the world of sports by purchasing a majority ownership in the re-emerging Aston Villa Football Club out of London. If his record with the Milwaukee Bucks is any indicator, Edens will excel with this purchase of the football club that is trying again to land a spot in the Premier League. The Premier League is England’s top football group made of only the best teams.
With the Milwaukee Bucks Wes Edens took the team to new heights. This year going into the NBA playoffs, Eden’s Bucks were the top team in the National Basketball Association’s Eastern Conference. Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is at the top of considerations for the NBA’s Most Valuable Player Award. Edens hopes to secure the same kind of success for his new team, Aston Villa Football Club.
There is only room for 20 teams in England’s Premier League, but that grouping is not ever set in stone. At any time a team may be bumped from or added to the league based on performance. Right now Wes Edens is working hard with his team to make sure all the pieces are in place to push Aston Villa Football Club into the league again.
A founding member of Premier League, Aston Villa stumbled in recent years and lost its spot in the heralded football competition group. With those stumbles came financial struggles for several years too, and Edens hopes to bring in much needed financing, as well as new operational insight that he hopes will aid in the resurgence of his new team. For extra backing, Edens was able to partner with Egyptian billionaire and businessman Nassef Sawiris who currently co-owns NSWE with Edens, the financial backbone of the Aston Villa Football Club.
A 1984 graduate of Oregon State University, Wes Edens took some time working for investment companies, and then was able to utilize that background and start his own companies. The methods he implemented for success worked for the NBA’ Milwaukee Bucks and Edens now hopes that same success will come about through his majority ownership purchase of Londons’ Aston Villa Football Club.
