Go-Jek’s Go-Ventures reportedly investing in Indonesian online media Kumparan

Go-Ventures officially kicked off in August after announcement by CEO Nadiem Makarim

Today, an official announcement by online media startup Kumparan, on its Facebook page, features the name Go-Jek President Andre Soelistiyo as part of the media company’s board of directors. As reported by DailySocial, it is said that Go-Jek secured the position in the up-and-coming online media firm through their fresh investment company Go-Ventures.

Just a day after the announcement of Go-Ventures in August, Kumparan appeared on the Go-Jek app as an in-app news under testing. This experiment is said to be a way to make users spend more time on the apps.
