Every year as part of the Welcoming Alumni event, Lembaga Pengelola Dana Pendidikan (LPDP) would organize an Entrepreneur Summit which consists of a pitching event and demo day for the best 30 participants that have been selected by the committee. ANGIN was invited to attend this event on Mon (7/5). We are very excited to be able to see all 30 startups that were pitching their ideas. It ranged from technology to brick-and-mortar, with varying sectors and industries.
What we realize is that most of the ideas has social impact in their mind. There are thoughts of creating a zero waste movement in doing their business, help local farmers and fishermen, and also helping the rural areas in general. Aside from that, we also see that more and more startups are heading towards using technology to support their business. AI and IoT are two of the trends that most startups are following.
Overall, it is delightful to see that Indonesia’s startup ecosystem is growing everyday and how they are leveraging technology to drive their business. We wish all the alumni of LPDP the best of luck, and we hope to see more startups from LPDP next year!
