Mobility and payments platform Gojek has secured a further $300 million in funding from Telkomsel.
Indonesia’s Telkomsel, which is a network service provider and a subsidiary of telecoms company Telkom, previously invested $150 million in the super app.
In a statement, Telkomsel says the investment boosts its existing collaboration with GoJek and will “further accelerate the progress of an inclusive and sustainable digital ecosystem in the country.”
Setyanto Hantoro, director of Telkomsel, says: “The continued investment from Telkomsel reinforces the common vision of the two companies that are both born and developing to answer real problems in society through digital and technological innovation.”
He adds that the move is also part of the company's strategy to strengthen its digital services.
“As a digital telco company, we continue to carry out continuous development that goes beyond connectivity capabilities. The growing needs of the Indonesian people require a holistic ecosystem, and this can be realized through the synergy between the two companies.”
Andre Soelistyo, Gojek Group co-CEO, says: “We are both confident and committed that this partnership will support the acceleration of Indonesia's digital transformation which will strengthen Indonesia's position as the leader in the digital economy market in Southeast Asia."
GoJek also saw investment from Facebook and PayPal in the middle of last year as part of a Series F round.
