Indonesian fintech startup BukuWarung has raised US$60 million in Series A funding in a round led by Valar Ventures and Goodwater Capital.
Other investors in the oversubscribed round include existing investors and angel investors such as former GoPay chief executive Aldi Haryopratomo, Klarna founder Victor Jacobsson, as well as partners from SoftBank and Trihill Capital.
