One of the latest additions to the list are the founders of one of Indonesia's largest coffee chains, Kopi Kenangan.
According to a spokesperson from the company, Kopi Kenangan's founders Edward Tirtanata, James Prananto, and Cynthia Chaerunnisa have launched an angel investment vehicle together with "a couple of friends" as a "passion project" to contribute to the startup ecosystem.
An Angel Fund Investing in Indonesia-focused Startups
The new fund will seek to invest between $10,000 to $150,000 into Indonesian startups (or startups focused on Indonesia), and has no preferred sector.
“The founders believe that investing in startups is an opportunity that can’t be missed, given the trajectory of the internet economy in Southeast Asia that’s expected to triple from US$100 billion to US$300 billion by 2025,” the spokesperson said. “However, financial return is not the only reason. The other is personal passion. So it is opportunistic and agnostic in nature.”
