I was sitting at a dinner with some VC’s and a LP talking about the region.

This came up:


I chatted a little about Yahoo and Koprol. How Yahoo totally blew it and this closing of Indonesia R&D was the signal for the slow, ever continuing downfall of Yahoo.

At the same time the Koprol deal kicked off the SEA deal making phase and created a group of techies that are slowly infiltrating the region working for startups or startung them. Or hanging at the mall.

I won’t try and list names. You all know who you are.



One thought on “Koprol

    Sigh. We really tried our best to build the Koprol community. But too much juggling, too many baĺls dropped, too little, too late support 🙁 But happy for everyone who’s following their dreams, building their own companies, and kicking ass across Asia!
