Gojek and Tokopedia have announced the merger of their businesses to form GoTo Group.

The two companies informed that the existing investors backed the merger. These include Alibaba Group, Astra International, BlackRock, Capital Group, DST, Facebook and PayPal, Google, JD.com, KKR, Northstar, Pacific Century Group, Provident, Sequoia Capital India, SoftBank Vision Fund 1, Telkomsel, Temasek, Tencent, Visa, and Warburg Pincus.
