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.
Some of the points covered in this weekly recap:
- Ant Group, the Chinese fintech giant, hit with a record-breaking $984 million fine for various violations, signaling China’s crackdown on tech giants;
- Sequoia Capital’s Hongshan expands into Southeast Asia with new offices in Singapore, Indonesia, and Vietnam, capitalizing on the region’s growth and China’s increasing economic influence;
- Temasek Holdings reports a net loss of $6 billion for the financial year, driven by market volatility and accounting changes, but remains committed to its long-term investment strategy;
- eFishery secures $200 million in Series D funding, becoming Indonesia’s latest unicorn and the first aquaculture technology company with a $1 billion valuation.
