Reinforce Resiliency
The COVID-19 pandemic that has been going around for more than a year has heavily impacted the business landscape in Indonesia. Judging by the current management of the virus in Indonesia, the prospect becomes dubious for startups that aim to grow as big as possible. Right now, startups need to step up the game to increase their business resiliency, venturing into the future full of uncertainty during and after the pandemic. In 2020 for the very first time the event was held virtually. It successfully brought together startups, investors, as well as participants from the safety and comfort of home.

Established in 2015, the inaugural Indonesia Startup Insight (ISI) offers insights and meaningful connections to the investors of Time, Energy, and Capital to reshape the future of Indonesia. Since 2016, the event has been helping Indonesia’s budding and growing startups through the global pitching competition.
