Now Mozilla thinks that something’s stirring in online Indonesia

Briefly met with Gen Kanai, Mozilla’s Director of Business Development in Asia, courtesy of an introduction by Enda. Glad to know that his visit has resulted in the report below, again affirming that things are becoming hot in Indonesia where the online activity is concerned.

Mozilla in Indonesia 2010

June 29th, 2010 by Gen Kanai


I spent a week in Jakarta in late May, starting to learn about the Indonesian web/Internet market. I had planned to go to Indonesia in 2009 but my schedule prevented it and in hindsight, I wish that I had gone sooner.

It’s clear that as of this year, 2010, the Indonesian Internet/web market is exploding, most obviously with Yahoo!’s acquisition of the Indonesian startup, but also further movements that have been less visible such as non-Indonesian venture capital firms moving into the country and starting to make their first investments.

TechCrunch’s Sarah Lacy, who was in Indonesia around the same time I was filed these stories which provide additional perspectives into the Internet market in Indonesia: What the Hell Is Going on in Indonesia? and Is “Remarkable Indonesia” the New “Incredible India” for Investors?

  1. I am trying to get in touch with Gen Kanai. He was a dear friend of my sister Marta Vargas who passed and I would like to let him know of her passing. I have no other means of reaching him. Hopefully this will get to him.
