Within East Ventures’ portfolio, 30% of growth-stage startups are progressing towards profitability, 60% are already profitable, and the remaining 10% are still in the process of adapting.

According to Willson Cuaca, a Partner at East Ventures, Indonesia’s digital economy has experienced rapid growth, and he envisions that in the next 10 years, Indonesia will enter an early demographic dividend era. The majority of the workforce in the next two decades will be comprised of digital natives, primarily led by Generation Z and supported by a mature millennial generation.

Overall, East Ventures’ successful fundraising efforts in 2023 highlight the growing investor interest in Southeast Asia’s startup ecosystem. With its diverse portfolio and focus on supporting innovative companies in various sectors, East Ventures is well-positioned to contribute to the region’s continued digital transformation.
