2021: A Year in Review

January 28, 2022

2021 marked the awakening of exciting new markets in Asia like the Philippines, Pakistan and Malaysia, with Gobi portfolio companies reaping the benefits of accelerated digitization. Gobi startups raised US$2.5 billion in 2021, 10x more than 2020, and 46x the US$54 million we deployed across our markets. Our stable of unicorns almost doubled to 9 (2021: 4 new unicorns).

But we’re not stopping there: 2022 will see new funds, markets, and LPs driving the Gobi portfolio forward.
