We attended Startup Asia Jakarta for the first time on the 26th and 27th of November 2014. With about 1,800 attendees, the energy was incredible at this year’s Startup Asia Jakarta. It was a really fruitful experience for us, attending talks about successful startup stories and learning about government regulation, startup funding, opportunities and challenges for startups in Indonesia as well as all around Asia.
One of the main event focuses was a hackathon, where startups had the opportunity to join and pitch their ideas (and the winner walked home with a prize of USD $10,000). We met a lot of interesting new app developers at the event and are excited to see how they grow in the region.
We really enjoyed the event and look forward to coming back next year!
