Powa's bankruptcy's story continues to get weirder the former CFO of the company posted a photo on Twitter that shows Powa's CEO Dan Wagner dressed as David Bowie. Powa Technologies, which makes payment apps, online shops, and payment terminals, was once valued at $2.7 billion (£1.8 billion) and raised at least $220 million from investors over the last three years.
Former acting CFO Steven Prowse posted a screenshot on Twitter of an email apparently sent from Wagner's account to Powa staff on the January 12, two days after Bowie passed away. Business Insider hasn't been able to contact Wagner to verify the picture in the email. He did not immediately respond to a call and email. But two other Powa employees told us they had received the email at work. The subject reads "Long live the legacy of David Bowie", while the body reads: "(....I don't do tributes in half measures!....)."
