Tales of resilience and growth from Indonesia during the COVID-19 pandemic

With Jefrey Joe, co-founder and managing partner, Alpha JWC Ventures
Indra Gunawan, CEO, Bobobox
Abraham Viktor, CEO, Hangry
Shinta Nurfauzia, Co-CEO and Co-founder, Lemonilo

Especially for categories like F&B and accommodation, the pandemic appeared to be a disruptive force with the power to bring a premature end to fledgling businesses. 

In this session, Indonesian companies across diverse sectors discuss the innovative strategies that led them to turn an unforeseen global catastrophe into an opportunity for discontinuous growth. 

Speakers include Abram Viktor from cloud kitchen specialist Hangry; Shinta Nurfauzia from FMCG firm Lemonilo and Indra Gunawan from accommodation startup Bobobox. Providing an investor’s perspective on these transformative strategies is Alpha JWC Ventures Jefrey Joe.

The efforts from these and many other firms in Indonesia have led to a total $1.47 billion raised by Indonesian startups, in Q2 2021, a figure that is above the month on month pre-pandemic level. Earlier this year, in Q1, the figure towered even higher at US2.64Bn.

The session will be sponsored by Alpha JWC Ventures.
