Last week, David Soukhasing, Valencia Dea, Riaz Bhardwaj and Meredith Peng form ANGIN had a chance to attend NextIcorn International Convention 2018, hosted by Amvesindo. NextICorn gathered selected potential startups, curated by NextICorn Coordinating Board, to discuss and pitch for investment opportunities with over 100 venture capital representatives after undergoing selection process with several requirements.
Through the event, we had a chance to met the startups, caught up with old friends from the ecosystem, connected with new investors who are interested in the Indonesian ecosystem. At the panels, NextICorn representatives, who were among Indonesia’s most investable startups, shared their insights into the opportunities that exist in each of their respective verticals. On the other hand, the panel of prominent international investors shared the stage and their perspectives on the opportunity landscape in Indonesia, while domestic investors shared their insights into investing in Indonesian startups.
With the aim of making Indonesia as a “digital paradise“, NextICorn aim to see investment perspective in the Southeast Asian region, especially Indonesia, through the eyes of global investors. In other words, issues including concerns over the regulatory sector, investment climate, competitiveness, regional GDP and growth rate, as well as the critical decisions to address “Series B” funding gap for the startups will be covered. Within this event, ICT Minister Rudiantara addressed the current strategic and regulatory framework as being considered by the Indonesian government to induce further growth in Indonesia’s digital economy sector.
