Why Should You Raise Funds in Indonesia?


With a lot of grounds to cover, there are plenty more opportunities to grasp. This is the sentiment on the startup landscape in Indonesia. As plenty of startups concentrate their efforts in this tropical country, a number of investors are flocking into the market to get a piece of the action. In fact, Indonesian startups received the largest share of investments in Southeast Asia. To put it in numbers, US$19 billion in investments have been deployed in SEA from January 2020 to June 2021, and Indonesia captured 38.7% of that capital ($7.5 billion).


To add, out of 8 startups that received the most funds in the region, 4 hailed from Indonesia. These are Grab, taking the number 1 spot, followed by Goto, J&T, and Bukalapak. GoTo and J&T themselves have raised $8.6 billion and $2.2 billion respectively, so it is no wonder how the two managed to make their way to become decacorns - earning market capitalization valued at US$32 billion and US$20 billion respectively.


Today, startups are bidding their luck trying to be one of the next unicorns born and grown in Indonesia. As much competition there is, the opportunities are so big and bountiful that it is simply hard to pass up; making it the best reason to raise your funds in Indonesia. To help you with your financing efforts, we have prepared a list of investing firms within the region. But before that, let's clarify some definitions.





What's the Difference Between an Angel Investor and a Venture Capital Fund?



Angel Investors: Individuals who use their personal money to invest in businesses. Accredited Angel investors are required to have a minimum net worth of $1 million and an annual income of at least $200,000. Angels are slightly more risk-taking as they are more likely to invest in businesses that are just starting out, often choosing ventures out of interest and potential profitability even if there is no proven track record. Angels tend to focus more on helping founders build their businesses, hence many acts as mentors and advisors to help with decision-making. Angels invest a lesser amount of money into businesses, typically in the thousands.


Venture Capitalists: Firm that invests in ventures using funds pooled from investment companies, large corporations, pension funds, and other sources. VCs are slightly more risk-averse and typically invest in businesses that are already established or have significant traction, but recently there has been growth in Seed-stage financing. They have stricter terms, usually requiring a position within the Board and a solid exit strategy. VCs invest a larger amount of money into businesses, typically in the millions.


Below, in no particular order, is our complete rundown of both these types of investment entities in the region.
