For over a year, Hegai has been helping startups break into the Indonesian and Southeast Asian markets. Our Bali and Jakarta chapters already gathered 80+ people, we’ve launched a coworking space, held over 20 events with experts on these markets, and founded an accelerator and a Southeast Asia business tour.
It’s time for startups to launch on overseas markets. Western markets are currently stagnant, and the Southeast Asian market is emerging as a super promising avenue for business growth. It’s displaying steady growth and is wide open for IT companies and startups
Why Indonesia, you ask?
52 million people in the middle class
And that number isn't slowing down. By 2030, we're looking at a crowd of 118 million
Over the past 10 years, >100 million people have come online
+5% a rock-solid GDP growth
That's a whole lot of potential users
These Indonesian powerhouses are among the top 10 most valuable in the world
Since the turn of the millennium, Indonesia has multiplied its GDP by four - that's some serious scaling
And don't forget about the local 'unicorns'.
