AbsoluteMarket is a business and financial news portal, reporting all the latest startups, market movements, and industry news happening in the Southeast Asia region.

We believe that SEA houses some of the fastest growing countries set for the next phase of global growth, and we want to fill in the gap for its under-reported startup ecosystem, covering everything from venture capital trends, startup fundings, and the much-coveted unicorn news.

Based in Malaysia, AbsoluteMarket is currently in works with news writers based across the SEA region to cover news in Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia, and the Philippines.
