2013 was an exciting year for Indonesia. We have seen e-payments solutions popping up, messaging apps pushing aggressively into the young smartphone market, and telcos starting to engage with startups.
So, what’s next for the year 2014?
In our first Tech in Asia Meetup in 2014, we’re heading to Jakarta where we’ve invited Andi Boediman and Natali Ardianto to talk about tech trends in Indonesia in the new year. We’d love to see entrepreneurs, startups, and all interested parties join us for this event as you will be in for a great time of thought-provoking content, sharing, and networking.
