Today’s guest is Pangeran Siahaan, co-founder and CEO of Asumsi.co. Asumsi is a leading millennial media publication. Founded in 2017, the site has been bootstrapped until recently, when they raised a seed round from East Ventures.
Bootstrapping a media company is a battle, getting any kind of traction is a success. But getting the 10 million monthly views Asumsi has is quite a feat. Pangeran and I discuss what type of content was needed in Indonesia, why brand is so valuable to media companies, and what the future business model of media companies looks like.
Thanks for listening. Feel free to drop me feedback or intervew suggestions on Twitter, @jessebouman.
