The Impulso Podcast is hosted by us at Momentum Works, twice a week, every week. Tune in to hear our in-house experts, community and guests unpack the latest trends, undercurrents and lessons in tech across borders. We explore topics like innovation, ecommerce, digital financial services, venture investment, and the broader digital economy. ‏‏‎ ‎In addition to covering our home base of Southeast Asia and advanced global markets like the US, we also draw extensive lessons from tech companies in China. ‏‏‎ ‎ 


This is the latest episode in our weekly recaps (recorded June 1, 2023). Some of the topics discussed include:

  • Temu and its e-commerce copycats; Lazada, AliExpress, TikTok Shop, and even Shopee, which are all looking to adopt or have adopted similar consignment-style models; 
  • Elon Musk’s latest travels to the capital of China, and the elaborate driving metaphor that followed. We discussed some of the motivations and takeaways from his visit;
  • The latest call to action by AI’s leading researchers, who have repeatedly shared concerns about the safety of the tools being developed and widely deployed to the public; 
  • Momentum Works spent the end of last week running a workshop and showcasing at Income Insurance about digital asset insurance, and the intersections of frontier technologies with the industry as a whole;
  • Where does the Web3 industry lie today?
