The secret is out! (Yahoo! buys Koprol)

t-shirtWell – this is what I have been working on for the past few months with my good friend and co-worker Shanan. My first M&A deal at Yahoo! but also the first of its kind in places like Indonesia. Pretty sure this is the first time one of the big internet companies has bought an Indonesian startup. This is great for Indonesia and the emerging markets as a region – showing that good products have an exit strategy.

I will be blogging more as I work on the Yahoo! integration and the plans for Koprol in the future. Stay tuned.

Just some of the coverage –
