The fund is the successor of Kejora’s early-stage investment vehicle Kejora Star Capital II that was launched in 2016. Meanwhile, SBI Holdings has made various investments in Indonesia since 2011. Its portfolio companies include Tokopedia, Investree, Ralali, Amartha, and Taralite.

The joint venture fund will be SBI’s first fund focusing solely on Indonesia. It is backed by a diverse group of investors, including family offices, high net worth individuals, corporations, and other institutional investors across Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, and Europe.

Kejora and SBI Holdings have appointed Billy Boen as director of the Orbit Fund. Boen is a well-known figure in Indonesia’s entrepreneurial communities where he has been an angel investor with advisory roles in various companies.
