Arrive is the venture capital arm of Roc Nation, the full-service entertainment management company established by US musician Jay-Z. Aside from managing musicians and producing music under their label, Roc Nation also manages equity distribution for musicians, as well as talents in the sports industry. Arrive has made a number of investments in the Southeast Asia region, including in Singapore-based scooter rental startup Beam and fashion e-commerce Zilingo. In Indonesia, it has invested in Kopi Kenangan, a chain of grab-and-go coffee outlets. It has also invested in Super, a Y Combinator graduate startup enabling social commerce through group-buying.

Beyond clever marketing, Kopi Kenangan offers affordable quality coffee for Indonesian tastes; with 300+ outlets in 3 years and profitable, Southeast Asia expansion is next.

Edward Tirtanata is best known for establishing Kopi Kenangan, the popular grab-and-go coffee chain. Prior to that, however, the finance and accounting graduate from Northeastern University, USA, had established Lewis & Carroll, a premium establishment serving artisanal tea. Unfortunately, the brand struggled to grow among Indonesia's budget-conscious youths, who preferred the cheaper bubble tea. Learning from the experience, he decided to eschew the Starbucks-style “third home” retail concept and opted for grab-and-go stalls that are cheaper to establish, but without abandoning the quality of the coffee served. The concept proved to be a hit, and Tirtanata's new venture became a nationwide sensation.Aside from his role as CEO of Kopi Kenangan, Tirtanata is getting more deeply involved in the F&B startup ecosystem. In February 2020, he joined Gojek and startup ecosystem builder Digitaraya in establishing Digitarasa, a new accelerator program for F&B businesses.

Before he became the COO of grab-and-go coffee chain Kopi Kenangan, James Prananto had built a career as an executive in Media Nusantara Citra (MNC), one of Indonesia's biggest media conglomerates. Prananto, who holds an MBA from the Loyola Marymount University, USA, started his career at Bakrie Brothers as an investment analyst. The stint only lasted for a few months before he joined MNC. Between 2013 and 2015, he worked his way up to become assistant head of investor relations and corporate finance. In 2015, he became the head of marketing for MNC's e-commerce branch, Mister Aladin, and held the role until 2018, a year after he established Kopi Kenangan with Edward Tirtanata.
