“All of Spout’s rungs are climbing to a very lucrative destination: owning viewership in Southeast Asia. Unlike the rest of the world, there were no shortcuts to this market, which meant Spout has to ladder its way up: first, by delivering an orthogonal product that appeals to an underserved market (Think: E-Sports), and then leveraging that position into an array of products (Education, Entertainment) that will both expand the addressable market and increase Spout’s monetisation potential.”
