Question is - how concerned should we be about the industry’s performance for the year, and where are the bright spots?
Separately, the combined value of the three of the most hyped Southeast Asian tech listings over the past year-and-a-half losing a combined market value of US$51 billion since their debut so far. So can PE firms meet the needs of their investors by investing in such tech startups?
