Durioo+: Netflix Meets Disney for Muslim Kids

What happens when you take Netflix, throw in some Disney, sprinkle in some YouTube Kids, and curate it Muslim children - well you get Durioo+ - a Malaysian video streaming startup that’s gotten quite a bit of investor attention, including from the famed Y Combinator.

A year after their launch, they’ve raised US$2.85 million (RM12.5 million) in a seed round led by Y Combinator and Gobi Partners and backed by those funds, Durioo aims to hit 100,000 subscribers in 2023 and 1 million by 2026.

Today on Open for Business, Durioo’s Founder and CEO Sinan Ismail joins Roshan Kanesan in the studio to chat about hitting those goals, the challenges ahead, the path to unicorn status, and the story behind their drastic pivot in 2020 due to YouTube’s policy changes.
