On August 10, we invited our chosen Generation T (Gen.T) 2018 awardees to come and celebrate their achievements together at Immigrant in Plaza Indonesia. The event was attended by powerhouses from the entertainment, fashion, F&B and start-up industries, such as Dion Wiyoko and Ayla Dimitri, with a short but meaningful talk from Bukalapak's CEO and Founder Achmad Zaky about his journey to build a unicorn start-up.
As one of our Gen.T 2017 alumni, Zaky emphasisd the fact that Indonesia’s future depends a lot on the younger generation and he sees Gen.T as an important initiative to nurture the future leaders of the country, with which we couldn’t agree more. Renowned architect Cosmas Gozali also chipped in with his thoughts on how initiatives like Gen.T will enable people to be able to recognise the young achievers and get inspired to do even bigger things. CEO of Kokatto Arsyah Rasyid also sees Gen.T as a platform from which young people, who are now equipped with powerful resources like the Internet, can be inspired to build successful companies from a young age.
When asked about how he feels to be a part of Gen.T 2018, Daniel Mananta summed it up by saying: “I feel absolutely honoured, and I can say that it is one of the highlights of my career.” Well, we are proud to have you as part of our Gen.T community as well!
