These problems are the one that we want to tackle by holding this event. There is a need for a platform where startups, mentors, investors and all people who are interested in startups can meet and discuss about how to tackle the problems that we had and capture the opportunity in Indonesia..
Indonesia Startup Insight 2016 consist of 3 main event which is Startup Pitches, where startups were given time to pitch in front of the audiences within 7 minutes’ time. This is an opportunity for them to introduce their concept and value to the audiences. Next, after pitching we have private speed dating session for startups with investors and mentors. Here every startup was given time to talk with mentors and venture capitals to discuss opportunity to become mentor – mentee or funding possibility. For the rest of the audiences, we had 2 panel discussion sessions and 1 expert sharing session where 7 prominent leaders in startup industry shared their experiences in Startup environment.
From this event, we learn that Indonesia has a huge opportunity to tap on. With large population, large mobile penetration and exponential growth in terms of internet user, digital economy in Indonesia has a great opportunity to grow in the coming years.
