Indonesia's largest telecommunication firm, PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) said recently that it is set to prioritize its agenda in supporting the creative economy ecosystem based on digital technology.
Telkom Indonesia's ambition in digital technology is supported by Indigo, its startup incubator program that is designed to support digital entrepreneurs to grow into global companies. The participant of the program will receive six months of incubation support and open access to markets, business, and technical consultants. The main objective of the Indigo program is to build a strong ecosystem of startups in Indonesia.
Recently Indigo's 10 best startups participated in the “Immersion Program” which took place from 9 to 16 April 2016 in Silicon Valley. The program provided intensive training to some of the best Indigo’s startups, namely Kakatu (Parental control apps), AMTISS (Asset tracking management apps) and Goers (Event discovery and management asset).
The program also introduced founders from Indigo startups with the renowned startup in Silicon Valley, such as Uber, Facebook, Apple, and Google, as well as venture capital such as KPCB. Following the visit, Indigo startups also attended the “F8 Conference” annual developer event held by Facebook as well as meeting the developer community of Apple and Google.
