The recent rise of opportunities in emerging markets has attracted enormous investments from China, the US, and other countries. As many unicorns and large-scale tech companies are accelerating to expand overseas to regions namely Southeast Asia, Middle East and Latam, they are simultaneously pursuing suitable channels to localize their business models to fit the diversified markets.
