The Platform Economy: Southeast Asia’s Digital Growth Catalyst
The Institute’s inaugural study brings together industry-wide perspectives and sets the stage for further engagement.

Never before has technology played a greater role in our lives.

While technology continues to turbocharge Southeast Asia’s growth and development, the reality is that it is also transforming our economies and societies in fundamental and unprecedented ways. We know little yet about how these profound changes may require adaptations in governance systems and regulatory frameworks.

We have only scratched the surface in understanding the impact of technology in a complex region like Southeast Asia, and much more can be done to enrich our collective knowledge and engage in meaningful discussions on the topic.

The Tech for Good Institute is creating dialogue, research and communities to harness the promise of technology and its full potential to uplift lives in Southeast Asia. We are a non-profit and independent think tank founded by Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading superapp.
