印度尼西亚最大的初创公司Gojek的首席执行官纳迪姆·马卡里姆即将离开他共同创立的这家公司,加入印度尼西亚总统佐科·维多多的内阁。

纳迪姆的辞职即刻生效。Gojek集团的总裁安德烈·索埃利斯托和联合创始人凯文·阿鲁维将接替他成为这家初创公司的联席首席执行官。最近高达100亿美元的估值让它跻身东南亚估值最高的独角兽行列,也成为印度尼西亚第一家估值达到100亿美元的公司。这家公司也曾在2016年成为该国第一家估值超过10亿美元的独角兽。

它在东南亚的主要竞争对手是Grab,一家新加坡的打车应用程序,今年3月估值达到140亿美元。Gojek的投资者包括谷歌(Google)、Visa,以及腾讯和京东等中国的一些科技巨头。

Gojek成立于2010年,最早是一款打车应用程序。之后,它慢慢发展成为一款“超级应用”,开设了包括Go-Pay移动支付、GoFood食品杂货快递、(GoClean)家政甚至(Go-Massage)短信服务在内的多种业务。

Gojek的发言人在声明中表示,公司为这种可能性做好了规划,业务不会中断。

发言人称:“我们的创始人将在印度尼西亚走向全球舞台的过程中扮演如此重要的角色,为此我们深感骄傲。”

印度尼西亚是全球人口第四多的国家,东南亚最大的经济体,也是全球第16大经济体。总统佐科·维多多又被称作佐科威,在10月20日宣誓就任,而纳迪姆则在10月21日宣布了辞职。

纳迪姆在内阁的职位目前尚未公布,不过根据当地报道,他可能会进入该国新成立的数字经济部,或是教育部。

在印度尼西亚政府发布官方声明后,Gojek的发言人补充道,公司将在几天之后发布另一份声明,阐明此举对于这家初创公司的意义。(财富中文网)

Nadiem Makarim, the chief executive of Gojek, Indonesia’s biggest startup, is resigning from the company he co-founded to join Indonesian president Joko Widodo’s cabinet.

Nadiem’s resignation goes into effect immediately. Gojek Group President Andre Soelistyo and co-founder Kevin Aluwi will replace Nadiem as co-CEOs of the startup, which was most recently valued at $10 billion, making it one of Southeast Asia’s most valuable unicorns and the first Indonesian company to reach $10 billion in valuation. It also became the country’s first unicorn when it passed the $1 billion mark in 2016.

Its main competitor in Southeast Asia is Grab, the Singapore-based ride-hailing app that was valued at $14 billion in March. Gojek’s investors include Google, Visa, and some of China’s largest technology companies including Tencent and JD.com.

Gojek was founded in 2010 as a ride-hailing app. It has since expanded into a “Super App” and offers mobile payment options through Go-Pay, grocery delivery through GoFood, as well as housekeeping (GoClean) and even massage services (Go-Massage).

A Gojek spokesperson said in a statement that the company had planned for this possibility and that there will be no disruption to business.

“We are very proud that our founder will play such a significant role in moving Indonesia onto the global stage,” the spokesperson said.

Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous nation and Southeast Asia’s biggest economy, as well as the world’s 16th largest. President Joko, also known as Jokowi, was inaugurated on October 20 and Nadiem’s resignation was announced on October 21.

Nadiem’s cabinet position is currently unspecified, but according to local reports, he could play a role in the country’s new Digital Economy ministry or in education.

The Gojek spokesperson added that the company will release another statement on what this means for the startup within the next few days, following an official announcement from the Indonesian government.
