Jon Russell from TechCrunch joined us to discuss Rocket Internet’s $1 billion USD exit to Alibaba and its impact to e-commerce and funding cycles in Southeast Asia. We dissected the implications from the Lazada exit and the continuing movement of Rocket Internet spinning off their other assets such as Zalora and Foodpanda within the region. We also discussed the next stages for startup ecosystems affected by Rocket Internet over the past few years. Last but not least, we discussed the future of Rocket Internet and revisited the “winter is coming” narrative in Asia.
