Fireside chat: Tech Exits and Opportunities in Indonesian realty space
with John Riady, CEO, PT Lippo Karawaci; President Commissioner, PT Siloam International Hospitals Tbk; President Commissioner, OVO
In conversation with Joji Thomas Philip, Editor-in-Chief, DealStreetAsia
John Riady, who took over the helm at Lippo Karawaci last year, to lead one of Indonesia’s biggest family empires, was an early investor in Grab as a managing partner at VC firm Venturra Capital, whose portfolio also includes Zilingo, Ruangguru, Carro and Sociolla. Yet, his biggest tech success could be spearheading the creation of e-payment platform Ovo, the country’s latest unicorn. Incidentally, Ovo is in talks with its rival DANA for a merger, and the combined entity could be valued as much as $4 billion. Tech apart, the 34-year old believes that Indonesia’s realty sector, across three spaces – urban housing, health care facilities and lifestyle malls – offers a strong business case to the investors’ community.

In this panel we will explore, where we are on this growth journey, where the missing parts are, and the quest for deep tech opportunities that are unique to Southeast Asia.
