June 8, 2012 by Joyce HUANG
I’m having a great time here at Startup Asia Jakarta 2012, chatting with industry experts, community leaders and startups based here.
Here are some quick videos to show what’s happening at the event.
Andrew Darwis, CTO of Kaskus
Kaskus is Indonesian largest online community. Andrew talks about the challenges of e-payments in Indonesia and how Kaskus is building it’s own payment gateway, KasPay to solve this problem.
Ollie is a writer of 20 books (and more to come), based in Indonesia. She has written fiction, business non-fiction, and how-to books. She is also a techpreneur. She builds communities like #StartupLokal (for startup founders, investors, and startup enthusiasts), Girls in Tech Indonesia (for women in technology or simply love technology) and last but not least, Bincang Edukasi (for grassroot movements in education). With several expert partners, StartupLokal initiators started Project Eden — the first startup accelerator in Indonesia, a pre seed investment company that helps incubate startup ideas.
Angeline Anthony, co-founder and CEO of NulisBuku.com
She talks about Indonesia’s first online self-publishing website at Startup Asia 2012.
Tian Qiuyan of Soldgers
She chats about experiencing the Indonesian market for the iStart program by iDA at Startup Asia Jakarta. Organized by Tech In Asia, Startup Asia Jakarta showcases newly launched and product-ready tech startups. It showcases only companies which are born in Asia. Of course, Startup Asia Jakarta will have, as the name suggests, more startups originating from Indonesia.
