For Oriente, the Philippines and Indonesia are two of its strongest markets that have seen significant user traction and growth. In , when the COVID pandemic became a global healthcare crisis, Vietnam was among the most resilient nations to bounce back to resume business activity. Since then, investors have been bullish about Vietnam, backing investments in the country despite difficulties in undertaking deal due diligence.
Cut to , with low vaccination rates and an increase in the number of cases, local businesses have been witnessing a prolonged lockdown situation. In the changed scenario, will Vietnam prove to be equally attractive as a destination for foreign investments by global MNCs? Is Vietnam as a single-country market an attractive bet for risk capital investors backing tech startups?
Our panelists will share their perspectives on the opportunities and challenges in the emerging SE Asian market. The firm is spending more resources and time in markets like Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines, and some cross-border opportunities. Pham was earlier the co-founder and a senior investment manager at VI Vietnam Investments Group, one of the largest Vietnam-focused private equity firms. The online marketplace has recently set up Tiki Global Pte Ltd, a Singapore holding company, aiming for an overseas listing.
Yet, according to IFC, only a quarter of the market is clearly measured for financial and development impact. As interest in investing for impact continues to grow, driven by evolving investor profiles and clear development needs, how is the industry set for sustainable growth? What are the implications of the influx in capital? What drives real returns in impact investments? The panel brings together seasoned investors focused on impact in Asia, to discuss measurable impact investing.
The UK-headquartered private equity firm drives impact through its investments in high-growth financial services and healthcare companies in emerging markets. The fund focuses on financial and digital inclusion; health and education; climate and water solutions; sustainable food and agriculture; and smart and liveable cities.
Apart from sustainability concerns and shifts in consumer behaviour, what is driving growth in the sector? How are alt protein companies changing the economics of food? What do investors stand to gain? Featuring top executives from Proterra Asia, Dao Foods and Temasek accelerator, this panel will explore the facets driving the sector and the challenges to the road ahead.
Investments in food account for the largest share of the total portfolio. Cross-border investment firm Dao Foods is targeting to back investments in about 30 China-based alternative protein startups in the next three years.
With proactive government policies, an ecosystem that fosters innovation, intellectual property rights protection, strong corporate-academia linkages in the field of research, the presence of multinational players and a robust vibrant entrepreneurial cluster, Singapore is considered a regional hub for life science-based innovation. In this panel, we feature two Singapore-based life science companies MiRXES and Esco Lifesciences, who have raised big-ticket rounds this year, have drawn up global expansion plans and are reportedly exploring listing plans.
MiRXES will use the proceeds to double its global talent pool to over the next two years. Esco is looking at building a global life sciences ecosystem between Singapore, the US and China, with Singapore as the focal nexus. Interest in the cryptocurrency space has accelerated globally since the beginning of last year as institutional investors embrace the emerging alternative asset class.
Mirroring the global trends, crypto-related startups in SE Asia have also reported increased user traction and deal activity. In this panel, we feature two startups who have landed double-digit funding, and a seasoned global investor bullish on the crypto space. Launched in April , Pintu is a licenced crypto broker whose platform is designed for both entry-level and experienced crypto investors.
Indonesia is home to over 6. Pintu CEO Jeth Soetoyo believes there is an immense opportunity for retail investors to gain access to diversified and dynamic investment opportunities. Pintu-backer Lightspeed has backed over 17 crypto and blockchain companies globally. Partner Hemant Mohapatra feels crypto is at an inflection point to become an important asset class globally and will give rise to massive companies that will become regional leaders.
Despite growing investor interest, there are concerns related to the opaqueness of the crypto market, the volatility of its prices and tightening regulatory scrutiny on the nascent industry. Join this session to get a nuanced perspective on the niche sector. The COVID crisis has accelerated digitalisation of consumer-oriented businesses as movement curbs meant people were ordering products and services online.
Some of these user behaviours may well outlast the pandemic and businesses are beginning to shift towards an omnichannel approach to reach consumers across multiple touch points. How are consumer businesses adapting to this change? Which are the categories that are seeing explosive growth even during the pandemic? What are some of the pandemic-induced user behaviours likely to stay in the long-term?
How are VCs assessing the investment potential and exit horizon in consumption play? The fund made its maiden investment in Livspace, an Indian online home design firm, last year. Jefrey has been an angel investor in early-stage tech startups in Asia and United States. Shahdadpuri, who will also moderate the session, has over 15 years experience in private equity investing.
Join this session for a comprehensive outlook on the consumption story in the region. Indonesia too mirrored the growth trends in the digital economy space riding on macro drivers, favourable demographics and the pandemic-induced restrictions bringing millions of users online for the first time.
He also serves as a member on the boards of Indonesian decacorn Gojek, JD. Sze Meng joined JD. Carro is looking to use the funds to fortify its position and expand its retail offering across Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, markets that contributed to significant growth in the past year.
Our third panelist Sachin Bhanot is the Head of Southeast Asia Investments at Prosus Ventures, where he covers a range of sectors including consumer enablement, B2B commerce, fintech, logistics and more. Prior to joining Prosus, Bhanot was a member of the investment team at B Capital Group, where he focused on venture investments in Southeast Asia.
Seen as a nascent space, Deep Tech — which refers largely to companies creating a tough-to-replicate, complex and scientific solution to a problem — is slowly picking up in South Asia in terms of deal activity and investor interest. The sector enjoys favourable government policies particularly in Singapore, the hub for much of the action in the region.
This panel will explore if South Asia has it to become the next global hub for deep tech? While Benchling sees value in remaining an independent company, the company plans to expand its offerings, Wickramasekara said. Bears think tech earnings aren't sustainable but fundamentals are strong: Wedbush Securities' Ives.

The same goes for encrypting. You can now post encrypted files anywhere you want, even on a public message board or pastebin. Recall getting a new computer in the olden PGP days. So many confusing details. How do we summon the private key from one device to another? Or shall we make a new key and somehow sign it? How many bits in this new key, we wondered. How high, we asked, must we pin the goat entrails. With Keybase, you simply bring 2 devices together to provision the new one.
Each of your installs gets its own private device key. Your work computer, your home computer, and your phone all have their own keys, which never leave them. They are not backed up to iCloud or Google. And yet, here's the magic: when you encrypt a file in the Keybase app, it will be available for your—or recipients'— future devices too.
The process of adding a device includes a step to ensure this works. I just wrote the following message for Twitter user billieeilish. I simply typed her Twitter handle into the Keybase app and it worked. Billie Eilish is not yet a Keybase user. However, if she joins Keybase and proves her Twitter account, she will be able to decrypt the above. She'll also be able to decrypt this picture that I saved by dropping it onto her Keybase app. How is this possible? What sick magic is this?
Is it server trust? I mean, clearly she doesn't have keys yet. Saltpack saltpack. It has a lot of great features for crypto nerds, with none of the complexity or security bugs that have plagued PGP. We also really like how the output looks.
You can paste it all over the Web without fear of mangling or bad formatting. It's safer and easier to understand than PGP. You never need to think about private keys. Not all data is a chat message. The app generates a shared key for you and them. Initially, only you hold this key. You then encrypt a message for this key, and you also sign a statement for yourself, an assertion of who else should be allowed to have access to the key.
In my above example, I've signed for myself a statement that I want Twitter user billieeilish to have access, and I've asked the Keybase servers to let me know when she joins.
