GoJek has often been ranked among the most innovative companies in Asia. GoJek, established in Indonesia in 2010, started out as a call center for consumers wanting a “motorcycle taxi”, had developed into a super app including various functions such as food delivery, ride hailing, payment, delivery service etc. In 2020, Gojek merged with Tokopedia, the country’s e-commerce leader, and became even bigger.
