[RECAP] Incubation Workshop and Tenant Gathering by BIT-BPPT

Thursday, 4th October – Last Thursday, Vivian from ANGIN team was invited to the Incubation Workshop and Tenant Gathering held by BIT-BPPT. BPPT as the governmental institution which focused on research and technology implementation also ran an incubation program specifically for tech startups.

Since 2001, Balai Inkubasi Teknologi (BIT) had incubated around 131 tech startups with three years duration of the incubation program. The incubation program offered several values to the participants, such as providing the office, working on product testing and certification, incorporating the company, mentoring and training, and giving access to market and funding.

This forum was arranged to understand how far the incubated businesses have become and how they survive and compete in the market. Also, there was an open discussion of some feedbacks for a better incubation program later on.

Besides that, there were more than 15 business tenants from BIT incubation program who exhibited their products. The product was pretty varied, from food and beverage, manufacture, agrotech, skin care, etc. They were Zingiber Indoraya, PT. Tryuasda Megah Warna, PT. Karunia Kautsar Perdana, PT. Microtec Sukses Indonesia, PT. Evia Maju Bersama, PT. Graha Atsiri Indonesia, PT. Cipta Mikro Material, PT. Bangun Mesin Sejahtera, PT. Telur Sehat Indonesia, PT Algaepark Indonesia, PT. Valensi Cahaya Persada, PT. Global Indotech Madani, PT. Biomagg Indonesia, PT. Agrotek Pintar Nusantara, Viande Food, and Lubinar.

Kinara Indonesia’s Indonesia Impact Accelerator organised an  awarding ceremony for its Batch 3 participants  last Thursday (5/12). 

At the reception, 12 women-led in Innovative and Ethical Fashion businesses pitched their business to a crowd of investors, government and other relevant stakeholders. At the end of the pitching session, four of them were announced to be the top winners and received USD 25,000 investment from Patamar Capital supported by Investing in Women. The four were uniquely selected via peer assessment model. (Congratulations Astungkara, Kostoom, HeyStatic and Minikiniz!). The event was closed with a warm networking and dinner reception.

This batch is rather interesting for ANGIN team as it focuses on sector that is rarely focused on in other similar programs. We thank the Indonesia Impact Accelerator team for inviting us to participate in the speed dating and awarding ceremony event. Because of this opportunity, we found  many interesting ethical fashion businesses operating across the archipelago, which we have never heard before!

[RECAP] Nexus Indonesia Salon

NEXUS Indonesia organized its first Salon in Jakarta with theme “Sustainability Check Up & Incubating Ideas on the Workers Safety”. At this event, ANGIN team had the opportunity to mingle with more than 20 exceptional young individuals, who have interest to tackle certain social and/or environmental causes. For the whole night, we were struck by their story and their passion in doing their impactful works; that ranges from educating women migrants, creating alternative solution to plastics, to improving the live of farmers and fishermen.

While these individuals have different backgrounds (from family foundation to social enterprises and business professionals) and aim to achieve a diverse set of impact missions (from women empowerment, environmental protection, to poverty alleviation), their common passion and spirit resulted in an engaging dialogue and fruitful idea exchange.

This Salon was also aimed to support Fahreza & Janhavi from http://www.tft-earth.org/. Through their work, they found that the workers at the end of the supply chain are exposed to dangers to the wild animals, accidents like cuts being hit by heavy fruits. As there is a high no of accident rate, the workers refused to wear the safety equipment. Through this Salon, Fahreza and Janhavi facilitated a discussion on how to address the issue. In the short term, they also plan to organize a hackathon to collect more insightful solution to this challenges. Currently, they are welcoming ideas and support from everyone (Any thought? Feel free to drop comment below!)

Seeing young individuals thriving to make a better Indonesia revived our spirit to create better impact for the country. This event is a refreshing experience. We thank NEXUS Indonesia leader and our very own angel investor, Michella Irawan, for hosting this amazing event and inviting us.
