Abstract: In ASEAN regions, encouraging startups is become a promosing avenue, as these firms are able to organize around software capabilities to take on incumbents. Doing so through collaboration between countries in ASEAn regions, the  Software Industry can help when done well, and can encourage the formation of technology clusters. For softaware industries there’s a good chance the  success hinges on start up  ability not just to use but also to build software. Using vendors often still makes financial sense, of course. But consider what makes start up unique, and how software might further that advantage. Investing in proprietary solutions that complement start up strengths might be a good idea, especially for medium and large companies and for growth startups.
