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 in our weekly recap episodes, which are published every Friday at 4pm SGT (GMT+8). Some of the topics discussed include:


  • When were Gojek and Grab talking about a merger? Could we be living in a world without GoTo, and would it have been in their best interest?
  • The background of Patrick Walujo, GoTo’s new CEO, and how it might revolutionise decision-making within the organisation;
  • Sam Altman’s on the Asia leg of his AI world tour;
  • Who has he met, and what impact will his conversations have on regulations, if any?
  • MissFresh is still around? And, they’re being kicked off NASDAQ?
  • How did this company, which axed their primary operations last year, laid off most of their employees and is in a billion yuan of debt, last this long?
  • Exclusive burning questions straight from the media about Momentum Works’ ecommerce report, answered by the report’s author herself;
  • How did Tik Tok Shop become so successful, almost overnight?
