Badan Ekonomi Kreatif (Bekraf) introduces Go Startup Indonesia, a platform for meeting startups and investors. This body is a place for exchanging information between startups who need investors, as well as investors who have an interest in investing.
The Go Startup Indonesia Roadshow (GSI) was held in seven cities in Indonesia including a roadshow held in Jakarta on Monday (10/29/2018). Previously, GSI was held in Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Batam, Medan, Bali and Bandung.
In addition to the talkshow and mentoring of the institution commanded by Triawan Munaf, it also held a pitching competition, exposure to startups to get investment. A good pitching is one of the startup capital to attract investors to glance at their business. So, pitching capabilities are very important for startup owners.
"We have got six winners from previous city roadshows. Millealab won the GSI roadshow in Jakarta, the winners will compete again in the final," said Bekraf Director of Non-Banking Access, Syaifullah.
Startups that take part in pitching competitions have been curated through pitch decks or short presentations they send. Some of the things assessed during the curation process include market potential, teams that are experienced and experts in their fields, as well as attractiveness.
The winner of the Jakarta roadshow will compete for the title with six startup winners from other cities. The general champion of the pitching competition will get mentorship boothcamp international and IDX Mutual Fund, join the IDX Incubator, and connect with global investors.
Mentorship boothcamp was conducted on 31 October - 3 November 2018 at the Aloft Jakarta hotel. Startups get material on how to improve their abilities in presentations in front of users and investors. Bekraf hopes that GSI Bootcamp can be used by startups to scaling up and attract investors.
