Rudiantara, as Minister of Communication and Information of the Republic of Indonesia, predicts that in 2019, Indonesia will have more than five unicorn start-ups—meaning start-ups with valuation of more than US$1bn. However, not a lot of people know that the disparity between prominent start-ups and smaller start-ups has grown bigger.
To bridge the gap, start-up accelerator Digitaraya is partnering up with Google Developers Launchpad to create a programme that combines the best early-stage start-ups in Indonesia with Google’s best resources. The first batch consists of eight rising start-ups that focus on six different sectors in Indonesia: education, logistics, health, and fintech. We’ve listed them below.
A platform intended to improve the capabilities of vocational high-school students to enable them to satisfy industry standards.
A P2P lending platform for rural markets delivered via agents.
