Open in playerListen on);
At Indelible Ventures, we strive to promote the startup ecosystem in Southeast Asia and bring attention to the stories of entrepreneurs and the businesses they have founded. By promoting the ecosystem, we aim to draw more attention and, with it, more VC Funding to Founders. RELATABLE - We uncover stories from Founders in our local market that will be relatable to an audience of Founders and Funders in the local market. USABLE - Our intent in surfacing these stories is to build the local knowledgebase derived from relatable and relevant experiences of a true peer set. SOUTHEAST ASIA - Limited audio content focuses on Founders in Southeast Asia. Further, as a Malaysia-based company, we are biased towards showcasing the underrepresented ecosystems in Southeast Asia.

This week we are joined by Ramachandran Muniandy of Asia Mobiliti, a mobility as a service company (MaaS).

Through this conversation we navigate the origins and the motivation to building something to better the nation.  We discuss the evolution of public transportation and demand responsive transit (DRT) that scraps the timetables.  A number of great points made that are highly applicable to every Founder out there.
