Southeast Asia and Latin America

Southeast Asia and Latin America

A recurring discussion we have been having with tech investors, founders, and corporate decision-makers this year is the booming tech scene in both Southeast Asia & Latin America. 

Both regions are seeing tech booming. Grab & NuBank, the largest tech unicorn in Southeast Asia and Latin America respectively, have gone public in December 2021 at very similar valuations. Yet the pathways have been very different across various sectors and only recently converging.
