[Discussion] Thoughts about the massive US$1.2B Go-Jek round

Kevin McSpadden
Captain’s Log, Nov 09: Singtel Innov8 joins Qubole’s US$25M funding; Goldman Sachs to invest US$876M in Japanese startups

The deal put Go-jeks valuation at US$3 billion, and seemingly gives it the capital to compete with Grab and Uber in Southeast Asia

Whhooooo eeeeeeee! Now that was a bombshell.

A Techcrunch report from today said Go-jek has raised US$1.2 billion from Tencent at a US$3 billion valuation.

There are SO many directions to take this. Go-jek vs. Grab. Will the company finally become Go-everything? Will it leave Indonesia? What about the China factor? What about Uber?

Soooo many ideas it makes my head hurt.
