Opening Keynote chat: Growing appetite for tech & non-tech deals – the Southeast Asia & Indonesia opportunity for PE

with Patrick Walujo, Co-Founder, Managing Partner & Member of the Investment Committee, Northstar Group

In conversation with Henny Sender, Chief Correspondent, International Finance, Financial Times

As the co-founder of Northstar Group, the region’s largest private equity firm and also an early backer of Gojek, Patrick Walujo will share his insights into the private equity landscape of Southeast Asia’s largest economy. The TPG-backed firm is fundraising itself and is seeking up to $900 million for its fifth vehicle. Northstar is also at a pivotal juncture where it is pursuing exits from its earlier vintage funds.

The case for Indonesia in 2020 and beyond

Agung Nugroho, Head, GrabKios

Sharly Rungkat, Chief Financial Officer, OVO

Gary Kheong, Executive Director, Vertex Ventures Southeast Asia & India

Andi Haswidi, Head of Research, ASEAN, DealStreetAsia (Moderator) 

A business-friendly government back in power, entrepreneurs in the cabinet and advisory roles, and five unicorns setting aspirations high for the country’s other startups – Indonesia’s startup ecosystem could not be in a better situation. And yet, significant infrastructure challenges, talent crunch and concerns over valuations could stymie this growth. Our panellists will share their views on Indonesia’s attractiveness as a market and investment destination in 2020 and beyond.

→ 10.30am to 10.50am

Coffee Break

→ 10.50am to 11.20am

Fireside chat: Replicating the China playbook in India and Indonesia

with Tuck Lye Koh, Founding Partner & CEO, Shunwei Capital

In conversation with Ken Koyanagi, Editor-at-Large, Nikkei Asian Review

Investors are betting on Indonesia as the next big market in Asia after China and India. Can venture capital firms with experience in China and India apply the same playbook to Indonesia? What are the lessons from investing in these markets and how is Indonesia challenging investors to innovate? We will pose all these questions and more to Shunwei Capital co-founder and CEO Tuck Lye Koh.

→ 11.20am to 12.05pm

The emergence of growth funds in Southeast Asia 

Roderick Purwana, Managing Partner, SMDV; Partner, EV Growth

Michael Lints, Partner, Golden Gate Ventures

Carmen Yuen, Partner, Vertex Ventures

Dave Ng, Head of SE Asia, Eight Roads

Nicko Widjaja, CEO, BRI Ventures

Deepshikha Monga, Editor, DealStreetAsia (Moderator)

Southeast Asia has witnessed the launch of several growth funds over the last couple of years in what is seen as a sign of growing maturity of the region’s startup and venture ecosytem. We will ask leading VCs how challenging it is to raise larger funds for this region and how the rise of growth funds could change the VC playbook in Southeast Asia. 

→ 12.05pm to 12.40pm

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.

→ 12.40pm to 1.40pm

NETWORKING LUNCH

→ 1.40pm to 2.15pm

Fireside chat: Are food hailing & payments key to Gojek’s sustainability?

 

with Catherine Hindra Sutjahyo, Chief Food Officer, Gojek Group

and Aldi Haryopratomo, CEO, GoPay

In conversation with Ardi Wirdana, Reporter, DealStreetAsia

As the biggest contributors of revenue to Gojek, the decacorn’s food delivery and mobile payment businesses are expected to be the main drivers in the company’s pursuit for profitability. This will be no easy feat amid stiff domestic competition and the lure of regional expansion.

 → 2.15pm to 2.55pm

Staying local or going regional – the road ahead for Indonesia startups

Hendrik Susanto, Chief Investment Officer, Traveloka

Winston Utomo, Founder & CEO, IDN Media

Ashish Saboo, Managing Director and Head of Indonesia, General Atlantic

Jeffrey Yuwono, Co-founder & CEO, Sorabel

Melisa Irene, Partner, East Ventures (Moderator)

As the world’s fourth most populous country, Indonesia offers a large captive domestic market. This creates a dilemma for most startups – concentrate only on the local market or expand regionally/internationally? We will ask investors and startups how they view geographic expansion and what goes into deciding the path forward.
 

 → 2.55pm to 3.25pm

Can Southeast Asia build a deep-tech ecosystem?

Pamitra Wineka, Co-Founder and President, TaniHub

Tong Hsien-Hui, Head, Venture Investing, SGInnovate

Norazli Mohamad Nor, Senior Vice President, Investments, Xeraya Capital

Kristie Neo, Senior Writer, DealStreetAsia (Moderator)

Southeast Asia’s deep tech ecosystem is young. Unlike mature ecosystems like Europe and the US, Southeast Asia does not possess the same level of scientific talent, IP expertise and regulatory oversight needed to spawn strong deep tech startups. 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.

 → 3.25pm to 3.45pm

Fireside Chat: A second headquarter in Jakarta, investments in next-generation electric vehicles, and local acquisitions – what’s next for Grab in Indonesia in 2020 and beyond?

 

with Ridzki Kramadibrata, President, Grab Indonesia

In conversation with Deepshikha Monga, Editor, DealStreetAsia

Indonesian President Joko Widodo in an Instagram post (in August 2019) had called Grab the 5th unicorn of the country. The post came after Jokowi met with SoftBank Group Corp. founder, Chairman and CEO Masayoshi Son, who announced a $2 Billion investment in Indonesia via Grab. From a second HQ for Grab in Jakarta, to creation of next-generation transport infrastructure with an electric vehicle ecosystem to the acquisition of local companies, what are Grab’s plans for Indonesia in 2020 and beyond?

→ 3.45pm to 4.05pm

COFFEE BREAK

 → 4.05pm to 4.45pm

Logistics and transportation: The Indonesia Opportunity

Tiger Fang, Co-founder & CEO, Kargo Technologies

Marc Dragon, Managing Director, Reefknot Investments

Sebastian Togelang, Founding Partner, Kejora Ventures

Eric Saputra, Country Head, Ninja Xpress Indonesia

Kristie Neo, Senior Writer, DealStreetAsia (Moderator)

Indonesia is an archipelago of over 17,000 islands. The complexity for logistics in this country is also one of the highest globally, crossing land, air and sea. Several startups have already stepped in to tackle some problems besetting Indonesia’s logistics sector, but even that remains at the early stages. Where is Indonesia’s logistics sector at right now? What are the next problems to tackle, and what have investors learned from their logistics investments so far?

 → 4.45pm to 5.25pm

The consumer opportunity in Indonesia

Edward Tirtanata, Co-founder & CEO, Kopi Kenangan

Jefrey Joe, Co-founder & Managing Partner, Alpha JWC Ventures

Deepak Shahdadpuri, Managing Director, DSG Consumer Partners

Gitta Amelia, Founder & General Partner, EverHaüs

Shotaro Tani, Indonesia Correspondent, Nikkei Asian Review (Moderator)

With a population of over 260 million and a growing middle-class, Indonesia is the largest consumer market in the SE Asian region. Once known as an investment destination largely for natural resources and commodities, Indonesia’s consumption-driven growth is grabbing investor interest. Why? Despite global uncertainty, Indonesia’s economic outlook remains strong thanks to domestic demand driving growth. This session will explore the emergence of new consumption models tapping on this story.

 → 5.25pm to 5.55pm

Closing | Fireside chat: Founder’s perspective – dealing with pivots & restructuring in building unicorns

with Muhamad Fajrin Rasyid, Co-founder & President, Bukalapak

In conversation with Michelle Teo, Managing Editor, DealStreetAsia

Aiming to be Indonesia’s first profitable unicorn, Bukalapak has undergone some major changes, including installing new strategy, management team and even CEO. Is this uniquely Bukalapak or is it an inevitability for all?

→ 5.55pm to 7.55pm
