“Indonesia’s Yummy Corp, a catering solutions and cloud kitchen startup, has raised a total of $7.75 million in Series A funding led by SMDV and Intudo Ventures, according to an official statement. …The announcement confirmed a DealStreetAsia report last week which said that Yummy had closed a nearly $8-million round with Intudo Ventures as a lead investor. Established in 2017 as an affiliate of Indonesia’s F&B and entertainment major Ismaya, Yummy Corp has two services: catering solutions and cloud kitchen.

“Intudo Ventures, a VC firm focused on Indonesia, has closed a new $50 million fund. This is Intudo’s second fund to date following its $20 million debut last year. The firm is a relative newcomer to Southeast Asia but a key differentiator is that it is solely focused on Indonesia, which is the world’s fourth most populated country with more than 260 million people and the region’s largest economy. It is also the dominant market for tech and the internet in the region. According to a much-cited report from Google and Singapore sovereign fund Temasek, Indonesia’s online economy will grow to $100 billion by 2025, from $8 billion in 2015. That’s a dominant chunk of the Southeast Asia market, which is predicted to reach $240 billion as a whole.”
