How Gojek and Tokopedia teamed up in Indonesia’s biggest merger


Kevin Aluwi and William Tanuwijaya recently made Indonesian history.

As founding members of GoTo Group, the 30-somethings are responsible for creating Indonesia’s newest and most valuable tech company after merging their ride-hailing and e-commerce start-ups in the country’s biggest-ever business deal.

The combined entity contributes 2% to Indonesia’s GDP via its various business lines including a powerful super-app, according to the company. And that’s just the beginning.

“Hopefully one day, we’ll contribute to 5 to 10%,” Tanuwijaya, co-founder and CEO of Tokopedia told CNBC Make It.

But you may never have heard of it. So what exactly is GoTo and how did it get so big?
