ANGIN (Angel Investment Network Indonesia) has grown into the largest network of high-net-worth individuals in Indonesia who pool resources together to engage in early stage investment and mentoring.
Our Angel Investors are experienced and prominent business leaders who have built their wealth in various industries (e.g. media, real-estate, FMCG and natural resources) and are committed to provide early stage capital to entrepreneurs operating in various industries (technology/Internet, consumer products/services, social enterprises etc.). Our Angel Investors play a crucial role in nurturing Indonesian entrepreneurs with strategic guidance, deep industry expertise and access to networks. They have the patience to allow time for new industry leader and company maturation.
ANGIN angel investors are supported by a dedicated full-time operating team and a strong network of partners (advisors, co-investors and mentors) that grows the exchange of expertise and facilitate the investment process.
The ANGIN Women Fund is a special program within the Angel Investment network Indonesia (ANGIN).
First of its kind in Indonesia, ANGIN Women Fund is an early-stage fund founded by 15 influencial Indonesian women leaders who joined forces to encourage and empower women entrepreneurship and gender lens investing (investing in women) in Indonesia.
The fund backs and invests in businesses led/owned by women entrepreneurs or with a business model positively impacting women (as suppliers, customers, employees etc.). The fund is targeting technology companies, offline scaleable companies and companies with a strong social/environmental impact (social enterprises). The fund generally invests from USD 25’000 to USD 150’000 ticket sizes as seed funding and is open to co-investment with other angel investors or institutional investors (VC, Impact Investors, Banks…).
Since its inception, ANGIN Women Fund has funded five companies and provided training to more than 100 female-led companies.
ANGIN leverages its unique footprint in Indonesia to conduct various research works as an initiative to share its knowledge and industry expertise in Indonesia. We aim to empower local Indonesian researchers and provide first-hand knowledge/data to organisations in search of deeper understanding of the Indonesian landscape. Some of our published works include:

ANGIN launched Connector.ID – supported by UNDP, BEKRAF and Amazon Web Services – the first online platform to help Indonesian entrepreneurs (micro, tech startups, SME and social enterprises) in accessing capital. Connector.ID bridges entrepreneurs in needs of funding to the most suitable capital providers (e.g. banks, VC, angel investors, foundations and crowdfunding). Through the platform, entrepreneurs can instantly discover a list of capital providers that fit their funding needs and business characteristics. Our team and partners experienced with the Indonesian market have developed our detailed capital provider database and matching algorithms.
Connector.ID goes beyond the connection and aims to provide essential learning materials (developed by practitioners) and concrete individual support to help Indonesian entrepreneurs better engage with these capital providers.
