Good morning,

Welcome back to Strait Up, our weekly newsletter that makes sense of what’s going on in Southeast Asia.

Singapore’s B2B startup Zilingo has caused quite a stir last weekend––what happened? Will the company live on?

We also take a closer look at the Indonesian tech ecosystem as its government gets more involved in funding startups.

And then there’s the strange Cool Japan Fund which has recently attracted criticism. But did you know that it’s an investor in Indonesia’s Gojek?
