In this gruesome competitive world of startups, companies are competing head-to-head to be the best. To add to the already chaotic scene, new startups keep emerging every day. Being in startups accelerators and incubators in the early/ seed stage is not enough.
HUB.ID understands this and wants to offer something that is somewhat different from any other startup accelerators/ incubators in Indonesia. In comparison, focusing more on business matchmaking scenes for startups in the post-seed stage, HUB.ID plan to build synergy with corporations, State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs), and government institutions.
Knowing that these startups had already raised outside fundings, HUB.ID can help them turn their focus more on the mentoring aspects of the program. With exclusive mentorships tailored to the companies’ needs, HUB.ID, as a business matchmaking program from Kominfo, is hoping that a lasting and impactful relationship can be made and nurtured, and eventually will create an impact on Indonesia’s future economy.
Documented from various sources, here are the top reasons why a diverse networking program from startup accelerators or even a business matchmaking programs like we offered through HUB.ID. can help to maximize mentoring sessions.
- Tailored Program
Like the accelerator program from Google, it said that in the program, experts help founders outline the top technical challenges for their startups and then paired with relevant experts from the industry to solve those challenges and grow their business.
2. Peer-to-peer (P2P) learning
According to Fabio Ziemssen from Provegincubator.com, apart from learning from the experts, startups can also benefit from learning from other startups and enjoy access to a great network.
The same thing applies here. In HUB.ID, startups can benefit from networking on a vast Kominfo’s relations/partners, be it from the most prominent Governmental organization and private-owned companies.
3. Venture Capitalists
According to Ziemssen, in the program, startups will build connections with Venture Capitalists while also “gaining expertise in product development, and acquiring know-how about company building.”
So, to make mentorship at HUB.ID more focused and perfectly tailored for each startup, we’ve gathered experts from 7 (seven) business verticals and Pitch Trainer experts. Those business verticals are the businesses that we deemed are perfect for the startup scene in Indonesia.
- Agriculture & Aquaculture
- Government Solutions
These are the experts who will guide the chosen startups once they make it to the program’s Business Mentoring Phase. We hope that the sessions can be beneficial to the startups as well as the mentors who joined. See you at the mentoring sessions!
