Indonesia Fund Fest, in partnership with Inotek & Habibie Festival launched the first
of a series of their roadshows, “Startup Hunt in Bandung” on 29th Nov’18. After the
resounding success of Indonesia Fund Fest 2018 held in Jakarta as part of the iconic
Habibe Festival in September this year, the series of roadshows are to be held in
various provinces of Indonesia to encourage serious startups to accelerate their path
to funding, get coached and mentored to be successful in their venture.
Prior to Bandung Startup Hunt, a Funding Workshop was organized by Chairos
Consulting, to coach entrepreneurs on the various facets of the funding process.
Startups from different industries came together to get coached by Mr. Nalin Singh,
founder of Indonesia Fund Fest and author of the best selling book “Get Funded
Now”. The participants had an exposure to real world insights about investors and
how to prepare themselves to pitch in front of interested investors, including how to
make a pitch deck and how to present it.
Most of the participants of Startup Hunt had attended the workshop in Bandung
200 interested entrepreneurs who applied, 15 startups were shortlisted to pitch in
front of the esteemed Jury of Mr Nalin Singh, Mr Shoeb Kagda, founder of Indonesia
Economic Forum, Mr. Sachin Gopalan, CEO of Orbit Ventura, Haris Abdullah &
Juita. The selection of these startups were made through a proprietary ‘Investor
Readiness Report’ process, ensuring the companies were thoroughly vetted.
The top three finalists who were selected by the jury were awarded certificates by Dr.
Ilham A Habibie at the opening ceremony of the Habibie Festival at Telkom
University on 30th November, 2018. For the participants, this is just the beginning.
The three Startups have their booths at the Habibie Festival to showcase their
venture in front of thousands of visitors. This is a great opportunity for them to
network and showcase their projects/services to the visitors of Habibie Festival and
other booth owners. The three shortlisted startups will get direct entry into the pre
finale of the Indonesia Fund Fest 2019.
