2013 in a snaphot: Who got what investment in Indonesian tech industry

e27 compiles some big investments made in the digi-tech industry in Indonesia in 2013. Many of these are Round 1 and 2, reflecting maturity of the market

By Christine Siagian

The year 2014 looks a great year for the startup and investment scenario. Our hypothesis is based on the encouraging investments that the digi-tech industry in Indonesia got in 2013. With funding of more than US$500million coming alone from European investment company, Rocket Internet, it speaks a lot about the confidence the company has in the market. Yet, the market has its own challenges — talent shortage, which is leading to a churn in the industry, a headache for HR professionals leading to unreasonable salaries.

As we expect the market to mature further in 2014, here’s a snapshot in an infographic form of how Indonesia’s startup and investment scenario looked like in 2013:
